The mirror stands as the focal point in spaces for millions of homes around the world and Paulo J. Futre takes the basic concept of a reflective surface and liquifies it. The artist takes clear glass canvases and splatters it with reflective silver paint that imitates a mirror.
The displaced image that looks back at you when experiencing the varying pieces give us a resonating feeling of distance. Paulo J. Futre has created what I believe to be an interesting critique of how we can sometimes view ourselves. In some conditions, our self image can be distorted while in others it might appear disjointed. Perhaps we can learn a bit about how our image can sometimes appear vague, but in other times come through with sterling quality to better understand optimism.
