Lorella Paleni

The first time I saw a picture that was a reflection was a photograph that my father took of himself as a reflection in a shop window. He was in England. In the Canadian army. It was the early 1940s. I don’t know what happened to that photo. But ever since I have been attracted to art that has the feel of reflection. That the artist was beside me looking at the image.

On the other hand perhaps it was because of my reading of Plato’s The Cave in The Republic. The allegory of the cave has been a huge factor in my perception of reality. I love Ms. Paleni’s work. You just can’t stop looking at it.
