Blown Out Tulips

10′ by 10′ hand snipped mosaic floor 2010/2011

The Artists are Matt Crestetto-Tile Setter; he cut the tile around the tulips. I love working with him.  He’s a fabulous Graffiti Artist and now traveling to legal places to make his Art.

Larry Gallagher-Grinding/Beveling; he did the dusty/loud work with a smile and earplugs. I’m writing about Larry a lot these days.  He is such a poet and just released a new album This Desert of Air, that I love and reviewed. It’s the words! We raced to see who would finish first, his album-my floor.  I believe, ” I won!”

Sarah Dorrance-Design/Mosaic: she loves the Earth and is frequently found trying to bring the outdoors inside.  I took this tulip Polaroid about 10 years ago and have always wanted to build it. Here it is. The pieces are small, all hand snipped and glued down by me.  A question that always enters my mind as I am building is “why”?  Why so small, so heavy, so manual, so hard? These questions are for another time and for the rest of my life.
