Don Joint: St. Thomas à Becket




September 15–October 19, 2015

Front Window Gallery is pleased to present Don Joint’s St. Thomas à Becket. Composed of hand-cut glass tiles and gold leaf, this mosaic is based on a medieval manuscript painting depicting Thomas à Becket, the late 12th-century Archbishop of Canterbury. Joint treats this source material as a type of still life: he looks at shape, color, movement, and line quality in the original medieval manuscript and then creates an original composition.
