Symbols of the divine (show up in our world initially at the trash stratum) - the name comes from the Philip K. Dick novel VALIS.
The work and painting is made in response to the serendipity of the found window using it to dictate the boundaries of the painting. This work includes a cut IKEA unit and a reflective element made from the combination of a concave mirror and convex lens, this reflections function is to remind the viewer that they exist and consequently of their place in the world while viewing the work, as with Jean-Paul Sartre’s - "The Look”.
