My artwork is a hybrid between mirror and paint, created with a patented silver alloy that applied over glass like a paint, the drawing literally reflects like a mirror. I personally call it “Liquid Mirror Paintings”.

In physics, the reflected image is called “virtual image”. Therefore, the act of painting with my invention literally creates an aesthetic virtual universe that interacts with the environment. At the same time, it reflects on the thoughts of postmodern philosopher Jean Baudrillard, and questions the role of figurative art throughout history with the ancient desire to imitate and reproduce reality.

However, the Liquid Mirror Paintings as physical objects are always unfinished, since they need the interaction with the spectator, who completes the final aim of my proposal.
