There's a fleeting, watery quality in some new mirror works, others glittering with gold leaf and silver over oil paint, evoking the cascades of Fiordland, or the moon and planets in a midwinter night sky.

Each bevelled edge or frame, from decades past, prompts personal memory, the viewer mirrored in the work.
