In 2005, I created an installation at the Institute of Cultural Inquiry in Los Angeles. There were hundreds of tiny paintings formed into a mosaic. Watercolors were cut up into small squares, a push pin was inserted into each painting and covered with gloss gel medium. The result was tiny sculptural paintings that look like jewels. The tiny paintings formed a mosaic of a brain, fetus and bees installed on gray walls.
