Magic Mirror

…In these images it is the point of view that triggers a drifting from reality up to the abstraction of shape and thought. In this sense, the vertical wall of a building can rotate until it is aligned with the horizon and lets a gleam of landscape come through the clouds and the stone…The subject represented always gives a sensory input even when delicate shadows and abstract forms lay on walls, and windows, and mirrors.  They are like concentric light beams, like stylized profiles of sunrays that allow for a writing of light…I think about these figures as the narration of an inner world, an idealized vision where artifact is only mental and leads to imaginary horizons enclosed in the perception of a moment.
