Murray Fredericks – ‘Vanity’

Murray Fredericks’ series ‘Vanity’ – landscapes of lakes with endless horizon where colours and light mirror and create infinite dimensions.

“Standing in the silken water, surrounded only by a boundless horizon, I sense a release, a surrendering as the self dissolves into the light and space.”

With the absence of human beings, the usual symbolism of  mirrors as a reflection of our narcissistic nature, redirect our gaze away from ourselves into the immense environment and open visual portals to other worlds (source artist statement)
