Artist's Description

Moon Mirror is the opposite perspective of Sun Mirror. This is the other side of the looking glass, an alternate universe on the other side of the mirror where a woman shrouded in darkness looks and sees the light within her. I felt this paired painting was necessary in order to capture the holistic nature of dyslexic perception. When I saw Sun Mirror in my mind, Moon Mirror was there simultaneously. The other side of the mirror, the other universe, was an intrinsic part of the thought. You can say that both paintings, both thoughts, sprang into existence simultaneously, and one was the shadow of the other. The Shadow, according to Jung, is the hidden parts of our subconscious, sometimes our animal nature, and often a part that we are ashamed of. # Despite the fact that the Shadow is hidden away, it is still very powerful and affects all of our existence. Similarly, the shadow world on the other side of the mirror, the world of night, represents the Shadow of the subconscious in my painting. The symbolism of Moon Mirror deliberately reflected its shadow existence, and even colours and forms were the opposite of Sun Mirror.
