FLY DUO is a collaborative artwork by painter Laura Letchinger and mosaic arts non-profit Piece by Piece; both are located in Los Angeles. Laura's painting in this diptych measures 60"x60", with the mosaic component by Piece by Piece on cement board in two parts due to weight (Left panel = 60"x35" and 55 lbs; Right panel = 60"x24" and 35 lbs). Light protective spray on painting, sides painted black. Signed on back and side. Painting is ready to hang with D-rings attached on back, and the 2 mosaic panels have cleats on their backs.
From Piece by Piece (www.piecebypiece.org):
“Piece by Piece created an interpretation of FLY for Laura's “CONNECTION” exhibit as an example of our artists’ skill level and a demonstration of the power of recycled materials, including gold from the historic May Company, which is being renovated (in downtown Los Angeles). From repurposed ceramic to scrap glass to backstamps to fused and dichroic pieces, the full power of Laura’s painting was manifested.”
Piece by Piece has been based in Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles, CA for over ten years. Its mission is to provide low-income and formerly homeless people free mosaic art workshops using recycled materials to develop marketable skills, self-confidence, earned income and an improved quality of life. Purchasing this artwork will directly help support Piece by Piece and the important work they do in Skid Row.
