Selector Statement

From a Still Point 1 and From a Still Point 4 harness the intrinsic properties of glass—reflection, refraction, and transparency—to present an unknown space. Rea’s works capture the way panes of glass arbitrarily divide and overlap the images they reflect, amplifying this effect by documenting it with a glass lens. The viewer ultimately encounters Rea’s works on what appear to be windows, adding another, very fitting layer of complexity.
