Imagined Mirror

Imagined Mirror includes a series of  paintings on paper and collages using archival inkjet prints and gouache on paper. In this series the “imagined mirror” is a gesture of looking and searching. The painted image signifies an effort to make “reality” distinct from the imagined. The effort to only reflect “reality” in the mirror’s glass often makes the mirror appear empty or reflect “nothing much.”
