Mirror Series

Work details

These are a few samples from the series of works I did while at Chelsea College of Art based on the body reflected in a matrix of mirrors. I glued mirrors – one set of square and one of triangular mirrors – onto flexible fabric and then varied their relationships to each other to offer different associated reflections of body parts. I then photographed the results or painted my model’s reflection. I worked in a variety of media on this project. Included here are: pencil drawing, gouache and oils on canvas and wood panel.
