A closer look reveals the nature of the countless mosaic pieces Hecht uses to construct these works. The artist cuts the pieces from hundreds of flyers and arranges them in perfect intervals. This painstaking process is done by hand in order to create highly symmetrical figures. Hecht transforms everyday objects into an ornamental aesthetic.
These collages guide our gaze inward and outward, the patterns extending out into space without limits. The nine square components can be arranged at will and hung in diverse combinations. This provides myriad possible choices for creating an awe-inspiring display.
