Artist:  ANNE MARIE KARLSEN
Artwork Title:  Revival
Location:  125 N RAYMOND AVE, PASADENA, CA  (PERMANENT DISPLAY)



Description
Stone and glass mosaic mural. The artist photographed the interior and exterior of the Raymond Theatre extensively and from these photos created a composition that loosely references the historic urns on the façade. The urn form is symmetric when seen at a distance and asymmetric in the up close composition of mosaic. In the detail of cut Italian glass, marble and granite the viewer can see a variety of compositions depending on her position. An exploration of color, texture and form, the surface is lively and changes as the sun moves across it during the day. Two Urns is composed of Mexican Byzantine cut glass, Italian glass smalte, German Gold, Uroboros glass, Giallo Atlanticle, Giallo Reale, Travertino Persiano, Onyx Persiano, Rosa Italiano, Light Rosso Verona, Admeter Rot, Red Granite, white Carrara marble, white Calcutta marble, and Azul Bahia
