Mirrors, are integral part of life we use them to create an image of who we are, who we think we should or could be and who we want to be, you find them in our bathrooms, bedrooms, purses and in other people’s eyes, words and thoughts. As an art exhibition Mirrors become a tool in expressing how others see themselves, reflecting how we see ourselves and the common thoughts and images that surround this, but furthermore Mirrors is a means to show how art can transform, reveal, confirm and change our associations between the beauty within both life and ourselves. In terms of functioning this exhibition is as integral to those it supports as the daily mirror check that is normal for each of us in our daily routine.  The reflection of a mirror sadly is not always one of clarity it is often blurred and altered by outside motives, in this way Mirrors through art aims to provide clarity where beauty is not an image but a feeling.

All profits from the sale of nominated art works will go towards supporting The Butterfly Foundation.

The aim is to allow art to become a platform on which individuals can express their thoughts, feelings and ideas about body image, whether it be through a graphic photo, drawing or bright expression of colour.
