Sculptural and Architectural Mosaic Design by Cassie Doyon
Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Whale bone, driftwood, seaglass, stone, pique-assiette, unglazed ceramic tile, tempered glass and watercolor on Wedi board substrate. 20.5x15"
26x23". Stained glass on concrete covered polystyrene substrate.
Adipose, 18x24" mixed media. Heat-formed plexiglass, woven large format photography, tempered glass, mirror, epoxy resin, fluorescent and luminescent glass tiles and pigments. Much of my media is focused on mosaics, and Adipose is a bit of a departure, although it does have some mosaic features such as glass and tile. This was a process-based work that began from an abstract painting that was then formed into a sculpture from Model Magic. The sculpture was photographed with a large format camera, and then the photograph was torn into strips, woven and mounted on plexiglass which was warped with a heat gun. Tile, tempered glass and pigment were added to finish the piece, which glows in the dark and becomes an entirely different entity. Adipose explores themes of female objectification and body shame, with the juxtaposition of revulsion and fascination, particularly with the inner workings of the human body.
