About this artwork
An intricate assemblage of reclaimed wood, carefully cut and placed together to form a balanced composition that also highlights the character of the individual pieces. No matter the side, there is a natural middle - a common ground - to meet upon, says artist Heather Patterson. I bring together materials as disparate as flooring, piano parts, driftwood and crown molding, seeking to visually verbalize the opportunity for unity. Though we are many parts, we can join together to form a new mosaic based upon mutual understanding, kindness and respect.
