3.5 x 5
About This Work:
It is 3.5 x 5 inches and this new experimental size sort of sprung up for Dave from the recent trading card swaps we have all been doing here in Dallas. It is a bit larger than the standard 2.5 x 3.5 atc size and so you end up with a little more surface to play with and the end result feels like a really substantial piece instead of a mini-card, it is thick too which adds to that hefty feel.
The tiny translucent green bead that seems to have a texture printed within it is getting that texture from the mesh below, it is really cool in person because if you look at the bead from another angle you do not see the mesh texture ... it is really a dynamic piece that sort of changes at different angles. Check the detail below and you may see what I am referring to better.
I am a sucker for anything that has a layered effect and this piece by Dave really does. The mix of textures and the shiny center tessera versus the flat black really make this mosaic special. I would love to share a web link to Dave's website with you but he does not have one just yet. I am going to bug him about that this year. I may see if I can help him get that happening soon, he has very professional photos of his work so I think it is just a time issue, I can understand that.
