Narcissus  2002, Oil on canvas, 110x154cm

 

In this painting the myth of Narcissus is adapted into a contemporary context, alluding to the narcissistic traits of today's society. The painting was consequently adapted to a video performance piece. In the video the subject is motionless, which connects it visually to the stillness of the painting, and when played on loop it alludes to a sense of timelessness, the boy lost in his reflection forever.

This piece was exhibited at the Gitte Weise Gallery in Sydney in 2003 and later shown at the Art Gallery of South Australia in the Everyday Addicitions exhibition of 2005.
