I love the reflections on fish scales.
When I created this picture, I felt an irrepressible impulse towards the colour, purple.
The wood where I composed the mosaic was a strong inspiration. The sign of time has made it a faded pearl gray and I was able to glimpse at the shades of purple scales which were born on this perfect surface.
I have matched those two colours in the two shades of the fish scales. By combining gold with smalto, based on how the light reflects various times of the day, I created the glitter I love of the fish scales.
Those who prefer purple, are art lovers in all its forms. This colour has always symbolically represented mystery, magic and metamorphosis.
The mosaic was made using the direct technique on an old wooden board.
Materials: Venetian white and beige gold (24k gold leaf), mixed Venetian smalti, white Italian marble of Carrara, gray stoneware, artistic ceramic, recycled material.
