About The Work

Tony Matelli's mirrors look as if they are in need of cleaning. Dust has settled on them due to neglect and the gestures and scrawl found on their surface appear to be whimsical marks left by various transients. Matelli creates them by an assiduous stencil process of layering urethane and acid on the surface of the mirror. He permanently fixes the meaningless scrawl as a transparent image which one is forced to mediate ones own image through—a type of filter that interferes and obscures.
