Central London Group May Meeting

May’s theme of Mirror produced a fine and varied selection of responses. There were reflections galore in a multitude of different surfaces – the blurred and distorted shapes of passers-by reflected in chrome, multiple reflections on the gleaming body and wing mirror of a vintage car, a staged set up involving a mirror and coloured gels resulting in a complex series of abstract shapes, dancers practicing in front of a wall of mirrors, enlarged monumental figures from coins echoing each others’ postures, and a mirroring of the old and the new – vintage postcards collaged with contemporary photographs taken at the same seaside location. As you might expect from the title Mirror, there were a number of self portraits including a very clever one both as shadow and reflection, the photographer as a youth reflected in a convex mirror, another with the photographer caught framed in the manner of a Rembrandt self portrait, and a very amusing pastiche of Philip Larkin’s self portrait in the mirror with his Rolleiflex! Here is a selection of some of the work shown….
