Artist’s Statement

Two halves create a whole, you can’t have one without the other.

I created a mirror image of a selected section of a photographic study I did of a martini. While painting I  added subtleties to highlight small differences, symbolizing how perceptions can change in an instant. In life, we are confronted by choices, two halves can have many meanings.  Whether it’s the duality of good and evil, the ones that succeed or fail, or simply, sadness and happiness. Halving things is a form of separation that ignores a middle ground, yet is necessary to complete the full picture.

We will email you when your artwork is ready for collection (early in Term 4). Thank you.
