Mirror Image is neither mirror nor image, nor is it the duplication of an image.  Rather, the reference to an optical effect invites discourse between the role of the artwork, viewer and site, and questions dualities such as reality and illusion, presence and absence. Though a singular plane, the translucent, reflective frame with a deleted oval shape, becomes a multi-dimensional installation. The elegant material and form subtly 'reflects' multiple images through a dynamic spatial interplay of changing light, shadow, landscape and audience. The human scale of this work becomes the starting point for experiencing and contemplating aspects of ambiguity, limitlessness and perception.
