"The Gift"

Detail of "The Gift"

The image above is "The Gift." The subject is one which has preoccupied Richard Notkin for most of his professional career. and was what first drew my interest to his work. This large installation consists of 1106 individual tiles and a pile of "ears" (below). Each tile is 4" x 4" - saw dust fired to achieve the variations needed in black and grey and white. In order to have enough tiles to assemble the image, Richard made over 1700 tiles.
