Mirror Images
& The Cinéma

This body of work grew out of a response to the recollection of a memory; being shown the Rorschach Ink Blots as an 11yr old. I’ve been interested in mirror images and interpretations that are necessarily elicited from abstract images. 

The figures present in some of these works reference David Lynch’s iconic 80’s film Mullholland Drive, in which the two main characters are mirrors of each other, and of us.

Some of these works have been exhibited at Chambers Art Gallery, Christchurch, others have been exhibited at Ashburton Art Gallery but most have not been exhibited yet. Works on paper are framed in the same manner as the Cinématic Forms.
