This work by Possible Mirror is included in 'Emergence & Transformation', since it perhaps represents an invitation and an opportunity for us all. So many of us during lockdown have had the chance to re-evaluate our lives individually, and also humankind generally and our effect as a race on the planet. Quadrant No. 3 with its optimistic colours perhaps us that opportunity to look at and re-evaluate ourselves both individually and universally.
From the ‘Quadrant Series’ by Possible Mirror, from an ongoing series of unique square-format mirrors. They are inspired by the influential artist and designer Max Bill (1908 - 1994), who studied at the Bauhaus under Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.
Like Quadrant No.2, this Quadrant also uses five colours, black, yellow, red, blue and green. Here however, the black is used to create a second square within the frame, which subtly echoes the first, and the colours are deliberately reminiscent of the Dutch 'De Stijl' movement founded in 1917.
The pattern and colours subtly vary with each individual mirror, and they are unique to that particular piece. A simple-to-use hanging system allows the art mirror to be hung easily flush against the wall in either orientation, square or diagonal, to suit the setting.
The composition takes a mirrored glass panel with polished edges, thoughtfully juxtaposed with four unique hand painted panels in artist's acrylic, before being mounted into a hand-finished American white oak frame, which has been sealed and waxed.
Possible Mirror’s carefully composed art-related works offer strikingly original focal points for any room in your home, and they are very collectable. They can also be specifically commissioned to be custom made in different colours or sizes, to suit both domestic and corporate spaces. Each mirror is handmade, then stamped, numbered and signed on the reverse. Please contact us for more details.
