Making Art, One Tile at a Time

Cappi Phillips' Signature Art for the Indiana Art Fair

Cappi Phillips' Signature Art for the Indiana Art Fair

Here it is, as promised! A sneak peak of the Signature Artist piece for the Indiana Art Fair by mosaic artist Cappi Phillips. This picture depicts the mosaic that will be adhered to the side panel of the television. To make her creation, Cappi is using mosaic tiles/glass pieces that are first layed out and glued on fiberglass mesh which will then be adhered to the television, and when dry, will be grouted. It is evident that Cappi will be incorporating images from shows that have been favorites of every generation over the years. Why the pictures you may ask? “The most interesting part of this process was discovering just how much television has had such an influence on our culture. The hardest part about researching and gathering the program images was how many classics needed to be included,” notes Cappi. What show do you think is worthy for Cappi to put in her art?
