Multiple point of view
The use of reflective surfaces in still life, interior space, figure and portrait work allow the artist to tackle the object from multiple points of view simultaneously. It is a good method to understand the relationships in space and how light interacts with that void. Mirrors create interesting compositional elements and can give a seemingly mundane study an intriguing narrative. This charcoal study has given me insight for a future piece that I will call "Janet's Nemesis."
