Mirrors, reflections, perception and illusion.

Shoe reflected in a mirror – the art of illusion

Shoes, mirror. 2013

This is a version of an artwork exploring reflections in mirrors, in this case based on a pair of shoes and a mirror. The shoes are positioned so that the reflection of each shoe in the mirror coincides exactly with the other shoe on the opposite side of the mirror, merging the real shoe and the reflection of the other shoe into what appears to be one shoe.
Like a lot of my works that involve illusion this one explores the line between reality and our interpretation of what we perceive, our perception of reality.
