Mirror, Mirror
Paul Hutchinson
oil and wax on canvas
1981

I had got myself a town studio above a real estate agent on Devon Street. Also this was about the time I was starting to meet and socialise with more artists. We had formed Taranaki Artists' Co-operative - TACO and we arranged many exhibitions and a mini arts festival in NP called Renonsense.

I think my new found confidence is reflected in this SP. It concentrates just on my face and was painted using two mirrors, one reflecting in the other so I see myself from another point of view. I am looking outwards.

I was trying to establish myself on the NZ art scene a bit more and entered lots of competitions. This was awarded a prize by William Sutton.

My father was impressed.

I could paint faces.
