Artist's Description

acrylic on hardboard

“I watched myself slowly forming out of water in front of a waterfall. Within the cascade I could see my reflection, but it wasn’t strictly me looking back. I (it?) looked perfect, of almost of an unearthly quality. Curiously I raised my hand towards the reflection within the falling water and as both hands touched I immediately lost my physical form, turning to water, falling, splashing, absorbed by the stream. Meanwhile my reflection travelled down the waterfall and replaced me exactly where I once stood. I wondered at my new reflection through the eyes of my first mirrored likeness. It was not as perfect, it seemed somehow flawed and no matter how hard I tried, I could not stop from raising my hand to touch the waterfall again. This same process happened over and over again, each time my reflection lost something intangible, until I looked upon a very faint image of myself that could barely hold its countenance, a twisted ribbon of water and liquid flesh. I lifted my hand fluctuating between body and fluid and once again was absorbed by the stream. I was not replaced. This final reflection could not keep its form as it hit the basin of the waterfall and like all the previous versions of me it was absorbed into the stream. " JR Scotland
