About "Shattered Illusions"
Contemporary society is obsessed with outward appearances, with looks, fashion, the external and the superficial. We study our reflections in shop windows, elevator mirrors, reflective surfaces, whenever the opportunity arises to touch up, straighten, appraise and adore the reflected self. Some surreptitiously glance at their reflections while others, utterly self-absorbed in their appearances, bring traffic to a halt, cause collisions on pavements and shove elevator passengers aside in an effort to confirm the illusion is still in place. Until the illusion becomes reality and emerges from the mirror, the negative self, the other you. What then?
The play of light and dark on contours of objects, landscapes and figures is a constant source of inspiration.
