images of the imaging of myself
Paintings are inevitably reflections of the painter. Some of these paintings are images of myself, and some of them are images of the imaging of myself. Water becomes an equivalent to painting in its ability to hold and reflect, and distort. The idea of a reflection losing its referent is the natural process of a painting.
These paintings follow the untied reflection, still made of its reflective stuff. They let the synchronicity of the reflective act fade, allowing the idea of reflection to lose its assumed faithfulness. A book, a painting, and an ultramarine pool become sites of indifference towards their original reference; the reflection begins to work independently. Water lends its blue, definitions shift.
