The Black Mirror series
I am constantly exploring the intersections between materiality and meaning. In my latest series of pieces, I use black negative space to create a mirrored effect that forces viewers to confront their own existence in a powerful and visceral way.
My work is informed by a deep awareness of the ways in which Western culture shapes our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Through the constant presence of mirrors in our daily lives, we are encouraged to see ourselves as objects to be examined and evaluated, rather than as dynamic and multifaceted individuals.
By creating pieces that reflect our own image back to us, I aim to disrupt this pervasive narrative and encourage viewers to consider the profound reality of their own existence. By engaging with my work, we are reminded of our own unique beauty and complexity, and of the value and importance of every individual life.
Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to create work that invites viewers to see the world in new and meaningful ways, and to engage with the fundamental questions of existence and identity that shape our lives. Through my abstract pieces, I hope to inspire a renewed sense of wonder and awe at the mystery and beauty of our own existence.
As the great philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once wrote, "The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude." And so, I invite you to engage with my work, to confront your own reflection, and to feel a profound sense of gratitude for the gift of your own existence.
