The White Mirror (New Blue)


The White Mirror (New Blue) is het voornaamste werk uit de gelijknamige solo tentoonstelling uit 2019. Waarover de volgende tekst in het engels:

The White Mirror is an act of reflection as much as it is an exhibition. In this solo exhibition, Donald Schenkel presents an overview of the different directions his artworks take, reexamining his fascination for oil paint and its materiality by further exploring the potential of glass, mirrors and perspex. All these materials share a kind of kinship through their inherent reflectiveness and transparency. Seeing your own reflection can be as captivating as contemplating the depths of a gradient. The artworks in this exhibition allude to both lucidness and darkness.

The title The White Mirror was chosen for its poetic merits, derived from present-day astrological interpretations of Mayan and Aztec readings of the stars. If you are a ‘white mirror’, it means you move through life by reflection. This evokes an image that is lucid, something clear. However, the Mayan day name and glyph Etz’nab that represents the white mirror has a second meaning: a flint, a knife, a skin cutting leave, a claw or a shard of obsidian at the top of a spear.
