Broken Mirrors


Thirty One Mirrors

In an act of faith, Weiss experiences an identity shift, which begins by shattering thirty-one mirrors, along with social constraints and societal norms. The remnants of these shattered glasses will be redeemed and assembled into abstract 3D wall mounted works where Weiss will focus on layering and raising dimensions in what she plans to be a more complex and powerful result than its original looking glass.

Thirty One Mirrors was inspired by a set of Weiss’s personal experiences, concluding that God supersedes luck. In this multilayered exploration, Weiss questions if luck ever existed, or if we are all merely exploring a continual relationship between good and evil, destruction and resurrection, God and the abyss.

Broaching subjects related to God, Weiss hopes to help us explore and even scrutinize a look into our own relationship with our faith and give the viewer pause, knowing this one decision affects our entire looking glass. Her medium allows the viewer to look deeper in a literal sense.

Taking a page from Weiss’s original works in piecing together natural objects of all shapes and sizes, Weiss heads in pursuit of a challenge from previous work, now creating from the unknown in piecing together remnants of an instantaneous new set of shapes.

All of Weiss’s materials are recycled, with her use reflecting her interest in reuse. The story with which her medium came to her in a matter of days, some call luck. Weiss calls it a blessing. Likewise to some, Weiss may be taking on seven years of bad luck for every broken mirror. Weiss finds the process exhilarating and is impassioned by the power that comes from standing in belief and expressing the beauty that comes from brokenness. She is looking forward to sharing this evocative spiritual chapter in her work.
