This project is a culmination of my 23 years as a mosaic artist, 34 years of restaurant work and 50 years of being human. It embodies everything I am passionate about and love: art, family, friends, film and travel. It is about connection, re-connection, relationships, human touch, unity, inclusion, contribution and collaboration at a time we all need, all through art. If I have learned anything from this unrivaled time in our collective history, it is how much we need each other and the importance of in-person relationships. My awareness of time and how precious it is has also been heightened, having recently turned 50.
“Piecing Us Together.” The details….
I will be driving across the country in my Subaru for 4-6 months to visit everyone that I know in person, who has touched and shaped my life: family, friends and strangers I meet along the way. We are going to make art together: a mosaic, the perfect expression of what this project embraces. Each person is going create a small mosaic segment. I will piece all of the segments together at the end to create a larger mosaic, a tapestry, representing the life that I have woven. The final mosaic is one that will be touched and created by hundreds. The exciting part is that I am going to produce a documentary about this entire project from start to finish!
Follow along! I will be posting updates on the journey on social media and through my mailing list. Sign up or you can find me at: Facebook: Kate Kerrigan Mosaics Instagram: @katekerriganmosaics
