Looking in the mirror is one of the most intimate experiences, this painting represent that personal and deep moment, the internal battles.
How futile it is to bring myself down for an image that will inevitably deteriorate and disappear. How imperative it is to love it with all my soul.
Based on analogies and colour symbolism, I chose colours that recall the contrasting emotions that I feel when looking at the mirror. I used iridescent acrylics as a metaphor; we are constantly changing and evolving.
Iridescent acrylic colours, pouring medium, stretched canvas, fluid improver. Iridescent acrylics appear different according to the light which makes this painting even more interesting.
