Mosaic: Sources of Inspiration

Devon Miller-Duggan and I went to Philly to see the Isaiah Zagar mosaic garden. The neighborhood is also full of bits of mosaic.

He is a trained artist, but the use of space and materials has a lot in common with outsider/visionary art. Devon is known as a writer to readers on this blog. She also does mosaic–there is one in my back yard. Zagar gives an impression of using what comes to hand–but you can also see the careful selection.

As always, I’m looking for text.

I am planning on some mosaic for the Santa Fe Poetry Garden. Although right now these walls are bare–but inviting…

Thank you, Isaiah Zagar.
