Artists statement regarding the artwork
My most recent works in the ‘Speculum’ series is a testament to simplification and optical qualities. The illusions of complex patterns contrasted with the optical qualities of solid glass. The surface reflection on the object as well as within the single symmetrical bubble creates an optical illusion of a complex moving pattern.
