Using an image from Owen Jones’ “The Grammar of Chinese Ornament” as inspiration, artist Molly Hatch has developed a new approach to deconstructing historic patterning and surface through an installation of triangular shaped wall tiles that create a large scale, three-dimensional ceramic lenticular. That pattern is hand-painted over an installation of 28 earthenware triangular bricks, the glazed surfaces collectively become a fragmented canvas for Hatch’s delicate, painterly re-rendering.
From the left perspective the design is rendered in a deep teal and black motif while the right perspective continues the motif in brilliant gold luster and satiny black.
Materials: 28 hand cast porcelain tiles with hand painted glaze and underglaze and 24 karat gold luster
Dimensions: 40h x 50w x 2.5d inches
