Meet Wasentha and have the opportunity to talk with her regarding her process and specific pieces.
Artist Statement: "My artistic subjects revolve around the forces that propel me in life’s changes. There is something profound about the process of creating what I call a “power” mosaic. Maybe it is the abstract and mythological relationship that is pulled out of the depth of what is not seen. I turn to the “space” between or around the tesserae to vibrate and hold the shapes and give them meaning. The visceral quality of creating mosaic art excites my senses. The rise and fall of the hammer over the hardy, getting the intended and unintended shapes, lets me know that my creativity is actual, yet always a surprise."
