IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, BREAK GLASS
“In Case of Emergency
Where does art come from? At times, it seems that a work of art flows from a past pattern, evolving in a logical sequence.
At other times a vision leaps into the artist’s imagination as if from nowhere, like Venus rising from the sea fully formed.
Such was the case with this body of work. In the spring of 2015,
I felt compelled to fill my Plexiglas box with shattered mirrors and photograph them. I told a few friends that I was looking for shattered mirrors, and two days later
my friend Hedi Russo called to tell me that there was a large
quantity of broken mirrors in the alley behind her house. I rushed to retrieved the treasure and for the next
four years worked on the images that you see here.
