It's Dawn!

Latest member of my Art Deco Series is Dawn.

Created using a combination of cut - in and overlaid pieces, Dawn shows a 3D effect if the light's right. Here she is with the incident light fairly straight on:

But if the light comes in from an angle, she looks like this:

Changes her character completely!

Here's a photo of some of the detail:
It goes without saying that the grouting for a piece like this has to be perfect!

Dawn is approximately 600mm x 500mm in size, and her substrate is rendered foamboard framed with aluminium angle.

A tryptich is a three - piece work of art. Each piece may be individual, but when all three are displayed together they show the full picture. In its earliest form, the tryptich consisted of three carved panels which were hinged, so they could be opened for display.
Nowadays, the term can apply to any art medium and that naturally includes mosaic!
I've done several in the past, and here's my latest:

Each piece is 600 x 300mm and the substrate is rendered foamboard, so it's suitable for outdorr display.

It has been sold.
