"MIRRORS 1"
Kez Hughes and John R Neeson

Opening: Wednesday 31 August, 6-8pm
Dates: 31 Aug–17 Sept 2016

Composed of mirrors and trompe l’oeil paintings, this collaborative project aims to intervene in the site of Bus Projects and realign it as the subject for artistic production.

Mirrors and painted reproductions placed strategically and aesthetically in the space will collectively record the fluctuations of light within the interior of the room and the exterior of the building. The painted subject matter will be constructed from a collection of previous recordings and the mirrors will also reflect light in real time.

These representations of light captured in the gallery are in opposition to each other, the paintings while static descriptions of time or frozen documents, react to the fluidity and constant reflection of the mirrors.

Focusing on the art community around her, Kez Hughes makes art about art, realist paintings that document exhibitions of her contemporaries. These paintings of paintings, sculptures, or installations elaborate on issues of authenticity, subjectivity, and cultural and social economies.
