Mosaic, paintings, tutorials and more
I specialise in abstract compositions and colour harmony mosaics on any surface.
Since living in South Africa (2011) I collaborate with the crafters in and around Cape Town, it is a new direction for me working with and alongside local artisans, use their skills, empower, transform and improve their lives, inspiring and challenging each other and setting up new creative applications for both parties and connect.
In my mosaic squares I incorporate these African Elements as well as handmade glass fusions.
After the participation of the Mosaic Symposium in Italy in 2017 I have now also made a collection wine-barrel art.
Currently I am exploring making mosaic reliefs in cement and plaster.
I also started a collection textured birds-eye-view sea-scapes and beaches scenes in bead mosaics.
I will continue searching for new ways to use traditional and non traditional materials in my mosaic projects.
There is a collection paintings that are fuelled by my passion for colours. (karladuterloo-paints.com
