Images from the Metallic Mirror Art Nude series.
As a child I peered into mirrors and wondered “how far does that other world reach?” These mirrors, polished sheets of metal, look into an abstracted realm; a world of dreams, memories and imagination. I polish, score and manipulate these to create windows into my illusionary world. While the final images are photographs, the camera only serves to capture a moment seen through the metallic portal. The result is abstract to the point of being painterly. I want these images to be beautiful, altered visions of the human body- soft, distorted and surreal like a dream recalled after deep sleep.
