 ‘Study for a Mirror’ explores an immediate and ephemeral take on self-image. Where traditionally a portrait endeavours to provide an enduring form for the representation of its subject, ‘Study for a Mirror’ refutes any concept of permanence.

Printing the portrait of whoever stands before it in light, ‘Study for a Mirror’ releases a fleeting reflection. Your image emerges only to gradually dissolve as the you look on; a reminder that, though ever-changing, it is not ever-present.
