The Beauty Is In The Details

Ramblings” Maylee Christie, 2009 90cm x 90cm
Smalti, semi precious stones, gold, fused glass, shells, millefiori, ammonites, beads.

Maylee Christie was a featured artist in Mosaic Art Now’s 2009 Gallery (“Premonitions” pg 40). When she sent us photos of her latest mosaic, “Ramblings”, we were once again taken by the detailed beauty of her work. Editor Bill Buckingham says, “Her mosaic is like an exquisitely intricate textile. It’s not about the whole piece, it’s about the details that make up the whole. You discover a singular ‘something’ each time you look at it. And yet, there is a complete ‘wholeness’ to it in the feelings it evokes.”

“Her work is very tight; no interstices here. You can see the influence of her work with Marco Bravura. Her colors are gorgeous and the palette works.

“I can’t imagine how someone thinks in detail like this. It’s not how I see the world at all. Ramblings gives me a new vantage point on the world that makes my life all the richer for it. For me, that is one of the great joys of art.”
