Artist statement: ‘noitcelfeR’ is based around the idea of self-abstraction and the way I associate with gendered presentation. The photos were taken from a mirror and show the reflection of who I am in each setting. The gaps in line and the flowing pattern have created an illusion which can be harder to look at. The spiral was chosen to convey a sense of a never ending cycle, a circular line that forms the entirety of my being. I was interested in expressing how overwhelming and frustrating looking at my own reflection is, as the person there is never the one I want to see.
