Opus Amandrinum

The work that I did in Rome was an exploration of geometry, color, proportion and space, inspired by the infamous Roman mosaic floors, especially those of the Christian Basilicasopus alexandrinum.  After studying the different patterns and illusions created in this type of mosaic design, I was inspired to create three-dimensional explorations of patterns as an investigation of space. The human brain rejects what it cannot organize-- what it cannot understand. My goal was to deliver visual interest and a sense of order through the use of shape and color. I am interested in how light, proportion and color affect one another and consequently space.
