InMyImage is a meditative play on the self and creation. The vessel also explores paradox with ideas of pure form and formlessness. The vessel has no hole, and in having no entryway it denies its functionality. By denying the functionality it takes on the role of pure form. In contrast this form is entirely mirrored, which becomes an object of pure reflection denying its form. The truncated head creates a visual point of inquiry that the viewer is drawn to. Upon investigating the sliced side, the form of the vase is repeated in the head. The presentation of the form inside the head gives further thought to the visual tension that is present between the vessel and the figure. This visual dialogue, which was begun externally, is now internalized. The text on the vessel a repeat of ”INMYIMAGEINMYIMAGE” is subtlety etched. This controls the tempo as well as forcing the viewer to become an active participant. The statement “IN MY IMAGE” does reference the act of creation, and there is an irony here that begs to be teased out. Of course there is the literal reflection upon the vessel, but what is being consider by the figure. Is it his own reflection? It would appear by the contents of the head it is not he, but rather the vessel that is being considered. So ultimately in whose or what image is created by what or whom? Also as the viewer approaches the vessel close enough to read the text, they simultaneously encounter their own image as they read that same text another play of “INMYIMAGE”.
