Mother Teresa is a highlighted figure in my series whom I believe saw the world through an inverted lens. She did not look at someone's appearance and judge them for it, she chose to see the true beauty within them. In the injustice we face today I believe "Inversion" forces us to look in the mirror of our own worldview. "Inversion" is a series of inverted paintings seen through an inverted camera, making it come to life. At first these paintings look grungy, incomplete and disfigured, but when experienced through the inverted camera the true image is revealed. The room dramatically transforms into a world we are not used to seeing. The paintings take new form while everything else is inverted. This series not only awes but challenges how we view and treat those around us in the same way that historical and present, known and unknown heroes do.
