I have been interested in exploring the theme of self awareness in my figures for some time. This piece from about 2013, titled "Will I Be Pretty" shows a young girl questioning her image in a mirror. I was intrigued by the fact that the viewer can't see her face except in the mirror.
It has taken me a while to get back to this theme, but, finally, Frank. His nose got longer and more exaggerated as I worked on the face. I decided he was a guy who was not telling the whole truth - at least not to himself. He would realize this if he could just look in a mirror!
His hand held mirror is mounted on a rusty can lid with the pull tab for a handle. The mirror reflects the face of a guy who would like to be frank with himself.
