British Artist Justin Bateman creates amazing Mosaics made entirely of Pebbles all-around Thailand. Using the natural landscape as his canvas he creates from famous faces to iconic works of art, each piece captures the character of its subject in a restricted color palette of stoney hues. Justin lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where he leaves detailed pebble portraits on beaches, in forests, by railways, and up mountains.
From Justin Bateman words:
“Originally crafted by collisional abrasion, some of these pebbles might once have been an arrowhead or the numbers in a stone age abacus; before forming the right eye of the Messiah or the cheekbone of a local farmer.
Stones and Humans share an interwoven neuroarchaeological evolution. Even language has been attributed to piggybacking on these neurological circuits, developed through early tool making and creative practice allowing abstract thought.
Stones that have existed for time spans beyond our comprehension, nearing the birth of our world as we know it… Some 4.5 billion years ago. These same pebbles transformation now includes a leap from the physical to the digital realm, as the pebbles become pixels which themselves seem to reside at the periphery of our dimension… Almost on the lens of perception itself.”
“The idea of being a person, an ego, is nothing other than an image held together by memory.” – Jean Klein (Philosopher of Advaita Vedanta)
“Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.” – Carl Jung
