Learning the art of mosaic with Bev Plowman
Proudly sponsored by Kingston Arts
During the last few months, I was fortunate to do a mosaic mentorship with Bev Plowman with the generous help of Kingston Arts. During this period, I worked directly with Bev in her studio, learning the craft, history and contemporary practice of mosaic. She showed me firsthand her own processes that leads to the development of her work, ranging from other artists to her recent French residence. Furthermore, Bev took me on an excursion to her huge outdoor mural for Moonee Ponds shopping centre, explaining in detail it’s development and influences.
This has helped me tremendously by adding another medium to my own practice, complementing my murals, illustrations, and contemporary art works. Deep discussions about art practice also had a huge impact on me, leading me to delve deeper into my own practice and push my ideas across the different mediums and let them speak and enhance each other.
Big thank you to for their support.
Bev Plowman is inspired by the properties of water and light and its magical, elusive nature. She believes water, sky and nature to take our mind to that “Spiritual” place. They ground our mind and are healing, peaceful and meditative. Her artworks provide an opportunity for the viewer to relax, interpret, and reflect. Bev creates “Hybrid” landscapes that create a bridge between representation and abstraction. The recognisable is filtered and transformed. Her ceramic and mosaic works are also designed to be contemplative and reflective.
