Reflections in a Broken Hand Mirror
Paul Hutchinson, 2002
encaustic on cotton
1500 X 1350mm

One image will often lead naturally to another and this one morphed from the HandMirror one. This time clasping the mirror with both hands. I accidently dropped the mirror and it broke. Initially I thought it would be too much of a cliche to depict it in it's broken state, however I became interested in the way it fractured my face.

This is also encaustic and this time I used aluminium foil in parts of the mirror.
