Superhero Mosaics on Display at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery
It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s a mosaic by Jason Dussault!
After spending a decade working in the financial sector, artist Jason Dussault reconnected with his passion for mosaic art by nurturing his lifelong love of comics. His creations, now on display at the famed Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery, reimagine classic images of superheoes such as Superman and The Hulk. Dussault constructs his portraits by piecing together shattered pieces of tile, grout, paint, resin, and vinyl.
“There’s something about comic books that are very fragile,” Dussault said in a recent interview with Bullett. “In my pieces there’s a certain permanence–they’re made of stone and cement. I’ve taken these strong characters that are initially presented in a very fragile state, and make them the most permanent art form you can have. These stones aren’t changing.”
