Through The Fence, Him and Her

Michelangelo Pistoletto. Through the fence, him and her. 
2008. Silkscreen print on mirror.

Michelangelo Pistoletto is an Italian painter. His work is considered to be pop art. I choose his mirror paintings as a final project because I think they are interesting. Pistoletto used photographic collages, silkscreen printing and tissue paper paintings to impose a realistic image onto stainless steal. Most of his mirror paintings are life size. They all allow the audience to become interactive in the work. I think they are interesting because of they interact with the viewer. No two viewers view the same image because their own reflection is incorporated into the art piece. The environment in which the mirror paintings are placed are also significant and may change how the viewer interprets the piece.
