Late Mirror Stage is a series of paintings that consider what it means to look in the mirror as adults, acknowledging the passage of time and the elusive nature of identity. The title makes reference to the developmental phase in infancy when we first become aware of the self as a separate and individual identity; the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan termed this the “mirror stage.” These paintings highlight unexceptional domestic moments, fragments of time encapsulated in the quivering shadows of leaves or the fleeting patch of light on a bedroom wall. Commonplace objects like light fixtures or window blinds connect to my broader interest in the domestic environment, which underscores my practice as a whole.
