Hillel's Description: A continuation of my exploration of deep space and using everyday motifs from my own life. The play of mirrored image and reality is one that has always fascinated me. Here I set up a vast mirror in my smallish studio, consequently I am shown at work with my sitters, my wife and her girlfriend, as well as our two grand children and our puppy Benny. Shown in the smaller mirror at the far end is my son and daughter-in-law. The little person is our neighbour and good friend Helen and the man in the doorway is Mike our mailman. I persuaded him to stay for a few minutes while I caught his likeness, sometimes things just happen and for me Mike's appearance just made this particular painting special. Although I'm not entirely happy with this one (I find it a bit tight) I do think it has some merit.
