‘Rokeby’ 60x80cm,acrylic on canvas. first of a few planned mirror paintings. the title alludes to the painting by Diego Velasquez. it’s about self awareness/self study. he delineates the contours and features of his body with paint. I was interested in the contrast between what we see versus what he sees. more to come.
this is on show as part of 'Bonded’ exhibition at the Leyden Gallery in London until the end of June.

The process of Matrix

I first began by gluing the mirror to my base.  I had to use construction grade adhesive to ensure the mirror was safely attached.  Then I taped the mirror to the base and let it dry for 48 hours.  Afterwards, I was able to begin gluing the acrylic onto the mirror.  I used a glass jewelry glue, so the glue dried clear and was not noticeable.  I had to use multiple objects to prop precariously placed pieces.

It took around 20 hours to complete this work.  There are a total of 96 acrylic blocks in the piece.
