 The mirror is simultaneously an object and an image. It connects an understanding of our physical appearance to our experience of interior space. The mirror is a framing device, a site for scrutiny and affirmation, resulting in both anxieties and celebrations in how we present our authentic selves. I use painting to investigate these devices for moments of psychological transformation and self-monitoring.
