HSIAO Chin – Cosmic vortex

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the art work Vortice cosmico / Cosmic vortex by the Chinese artist Hsiao Chin (蕭勤).

It is a large mosaic triptych realized by Lino Reduzzi in 2008. It was made with colored Venetian smalto tesserae in about twenty-five different tones: all these colors were directly chosen by both Lino Reduzzi and Hsiao Chin himself in order to permit the most accurate realization of the original sketch drawn by the artist. The mosaic background was realized with white marble tesserae hand-cut in different sizes and it was enhanced by gold tesserae with surfaces both smooth and wavy.
