Mirror Image holds the outline of a C19th cheval mirror, an object connected with female beauty and a 'good' commonly traded or gifted to indigenous peoples in an era when mirrors represented coloniser's god-like power. Neither mirror nor image, the sculpture's geometry and optical effects disrupt dualities of past and present, subjectivity and objectivity, reality and illusion.

With a dynamic interplay of shadow, landscape, movement and light, the planar form becomes a  multi-layered installation, catching crisp reflections in the translucent glass, and casting shadows that replicate a 'mirror image' on the ground. An alluring sensory experience, Mirror Image faces backward and forward, offering a glimpse into non-linear time.
