Mosaic Art and Photography by Denny Nkemontoh
The definition of the word refract is "To alter the appearance
of something by viewing or showing it through a different medium."
I chose Refractions for the name of my business because in my
art I strive to use different and unusual mediums and techniques
in order to create a new perspective on common objects.
A teacher, I began mosaicing as a way to relax and nurture my
creative side. I currently mosaic around mirrors, interpret stories
and concepts through mosaic portraiture, mosaic furniture, and
create abstract art through the use of multi-media – incorporating
shells, fossils, gems, glass, and more.
In my photography, I often concentrate upon the rarely seen aspects
of an individual object which make it exceptional - the stamen
of a flower, or a finely colored insect carapace. I am often surprised
when I look at the print to discover the things I captured that
I didn't even see when I took the picture.
Please look through my gallery, and see if your reality is refracted,
if only a little bit! You are welcome to contact me with any comments.
