Mirror Series

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, Who's the Fairest One of us All?

1. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…

When I built the first mirror in this series—the green one—“Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall…” in 1999, it felt like an exploration into a more personal realm. I used colored pencil on paper with leather, wire, glass and ceramic beads. On the back is a poem I wrote at the time, about the ongoing process of aging.

I later realized it was not the first time I had used mirrors; in fact pieces such as “Reflection Study” with mirror shards and “Seeking Serenity” were done 10 and 20 years prior. It was intriguing to find a connecting thread in my own work of which I had been unaware.
