Whilst my husband (an actor), was working on the stage show ‘Love Never Dies’, a company member flagged the idea of showcasing talents of the highly creative people involved, with a theme taken from the show song, ‘Beauty Underneath’. Whilst this in-house exhibition unfortunately never eventuated, it got me thinking! The mosaic, Beauty Underneath, is the result.
This work addresses clichés such as, “Never judge a book by its cover”, and “Beauty is only skin deep”, by providing an unadorned ‘skin’ of concrete which is seemingly ripped back to reveal veins of rich, beautiful materials and colours. It is the first in a series of mosaics I have on the agenda that explore this theme.
