Blue Carole is the second piece in a series of mosaic portraits of the same beautiful and enigmatic Carole. The whole series is realized on the basis of a same Opus Pixellatum model. Different pieces are created by changing the ways the whole model is followed. From an original model designed in Black and White tones, I created Blue Carole by switching to a Blue scale of tiles.
Opus Pixelatum is a mosaic technique I invented in 2015. It allows to create very different mosaics from a same model. The printed model used to build the mosaic is similar in its principle to a sheet music that precisely describes a musical piece. Different musicians can play the same tune in different ways, but a listener should always recognize the overall melody. Many different mosaics can be created from a same Opus Pixellatum model but a viewer should always recognize the underlying pattern.
