My Comments

At face value, Thea's mosaic is a jumble of pomegranates, newspaper clippings, and other objects that were hard for me to think of a name for. But her mosaic highlights some of Zagar's style points. She noticed that he likes to draw faces in a particular style and tried to recreate that. She drew bottles to mirror his love for the mundane things. She positioned them in a jumble because Zagar seems to like to work with irregularly shaped things. In my opinion, the most interesting aspect of Thea's mosaic is her wordplay.
