This series of resin paintings are embedded with broken mirror shards on MDF wood. The compositions are abstract, but are often inspired by aerial views of landscape. The mirrors entice the viewer as the self is drawn in to be part of the art, consciously directing the viewer to be aware that their image is part of the piece. And perhaps inspires the viewer to take a selfie.
Our culture's connection to the self is a reoccurring theme in Swistel's work.
