  • The mirror implies a reversal of what is ‘given’. Using the framework of the mirror, I discovered a veil, a lamination of liquid holding the image beyond  the reach of the viewer, refering the veiwer endlessly to what is not seen - playing with that desire to hold the image. The use of candlelight, the processes involved create a safety within which I am free to perform. The colours for me imply something rich, sensuous, to be treasured. Similarly the paintings insist on the importance of the lived experience - disappearing back into the photograph should any attempt be made at reproduction. It is an attempt to defy translation. To be unique.
