ART AT BAYSIDE
IRINA CHARNY “As a child growing up in Russia, even before I knew they were called mosaics, I created collages from pieces of broken glass found on the street, rocks, paper, seashells, and bits of crockery.”
“I am a self-taught mosaicist. While I am inspired by the rich history of the medium, I strive to build a unique and personal art form on the base of classical mosaic. In addition to traditional mosaic tesserae I incorporate unusual materials in my work – mirrors, pebbles, found objects, beads, buttons, wire, handmade ceramic pieces, and broken plates are inserted into each work to give it a special personal meaning. I never return home empty handed from a walk on the beach or a trip”.
Irina’s works have been exhibited in Oregon, San Diego, Miami, Chicago, Newport Beach, Dallas and Washington. She received the Members Choice Award at the Society of American Mosaic Artists at Museo Italo Americano, San Francisco; participated at the Mosaics Arts International, Museum of Man, San Diego; the Butterfly Initiative at Roger’s Gardens, Newport Beach; the Society of American Mosaic Artists at High Risk Gallery, Chicago, IL; the Earth Elements, Society of American Mosaic Artists, Miami FL. and many others. Her mosaics are in the collection of the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, Ca. Irina has done many special commissions and enjoys working with collectors and art lovers and welcomes collaborative projects. www.icmosaics.com
