“It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.” –Oscar Wilde


The new glass mirror pieces by Michael Petry are a development from his Artist in Residency last year at Sir John Soane’s Museum, London. Soane used mirrors and glass throughout his home in many ways to evoke different states of mind and feeling. The museum is also undergoing a huge restoration project, as are many such 18th century buildings and many historic paintings. The idea of a continual state of restoration is at the core of Petry’s new works and applies not only to the objects but the self of the viewer in these disrupted mirrors.
