I spent the other day exploring and painting in an abandoned mansion near Barcelona. In its heyday the estate was a decadent beach front palace. Today it has been left to complete ruins and more than a few of us have come through to leave our mark. While adding to the decay I decided to paint on a mirrored closet with a phrase to reflect on. Especially for those who once lived here. Keep It Simple Stupid

Keep your eyes open for 26 new mirrors installed on the streets around Barcelona, one with each letter of the alphabet.
Just as graffiti fills in the negative, forgotten, and ignored spaces of our cities I hand painted in the negative space of the letters and left the city to fill in the rest.
The Reflect On project speaks via these windows. They are visual messages to us from our other selves and a reflection of the world we inhabit.
The photos of these paintings are simply snapshots of paintings that are constantly moving and changing.
When you look into a mirror you are the only subject that it speaks to and about in that moment. When you move on it is no longer yours.
In the public space these mirrors are everyone’s and they are about everyone.
