Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
Six reflections. Mirror: a symbol of the imagination or of consciousness in its capacity to reflect the formal reality of the visible world. It is a surface which reproduces images and in a way contains and absorbs them. The mirror is lunar is afforded by its reflecting and passive characteristics. At times, it takes the mythic form of a door through which the soul may free itself “passing” to the other side. No means exhausts the complex symbolism of the mirror: are magic symbols for unconscious memories, are emblems of truth.
Five people with five mirrors give way to another man. There is a sixth reflection. Are we a reflection of the others?
