Devoid of a painter yet still featuring an easel, these images are meant to be thought-provoking - posing the question; does art exist outside the frame?
In collaboration with artist Kai Atticus, I was able to reunite sand to its molten and refined state (reflective glass). By using a mirror as a canvas, we reflected the desert’s unseen beauty organically.
Just like mirrors are made from sand, traditional art is often made on an easel (bordered by a stretched wooden canvas). Kai and I worked backwards - taking art’s tradition and stretching it instead onto a reflective canvas - a mirror bordered white.
People often view the desert as an unforgiving or uninteresting place, but the desert contained truly unseen beauty - reflected, bordered, and constrained within our easel.
