My Mozaica galleries are works that I create on commission, using as a source of base materials a collection of drawings, paintings, and other crafts of a child. Like a poem, I compose the portrait of the imaginary world of each child by extracting the essence of his drawings, and laying it’s elements in the work at the whim of the inspiration they instill.
The Mozaica gallery of a child soon becomes a family heirloom, destined to be later bequeath to the grown-up child, to take place among his most precious and treasured souvenirs.
I also create “thematic” Mozaica galleries by using drawings made by a large number of children. These works depict real and imaginary collective worlds, and they are usually focused on a specific theme— my school, the hospital, peace, love, my family, my holidays, etc. I undertake most of these Mozaica galleries on my own initiative, or at the request of sponsors.
