Artist Statement

A dichotomous relationship is set up between two figures, impenetrably connected through the surface of the mirror. The artist measures, tapes and paints a geometric pattern on the reflected image of a male body as he transposes himself in and out of difficult yoga poses. The artist appears uncertain, struggling to map his body as it is viewed from the perspective of the camera. The yogi, conversely, is quiet and contained, seemingly unaffected by the methodical manipulation of his image.
