mixed media on canvas - 150x100 cm (2022)
This painting is one of my latest work and I must say it took a while to resolve it.
This artwork was born as part of the Mirrors series, that I developed inspired by the theme of Rospigliosi Art Prize "Visible Invisible". I represented a reflected surface as I wanted to evoke the idea of a mirror as a gate towards other dimensions. Now the reflections has changed into darkness since I aim to explore the dark side of creativity.
At the time I painted it I felt this artwork wasn't completed and only recently I perceived the need to complete it.
This is how it looked like in 2019:
Now it's part of the Shadows series and I do feel it is finally 'resolved'.
I used acrylics, enamel and gesso. The title is a reference to the movie "Alice Through the Looking Glass"
