Painting the mirror

Finally I decided that the best way to utilise the mirror was to go with the doorway idea; I thought about the phrase “the grass is always greener on the other side” and how my doorway onto a beautiful sunset might be a more preferable place to be for some. The peacock was added after the masking tape had been taken off, revealing sections of the mirror as a symbol of elegance, looking back at the audience, inviting them to join it. I believe that it is very important to include and be thinking about those who will look at the work and so using a mirror means that I can literally include them into the piece, hopefully meaning that they will bring their own experiences to how the understand the work.
