Artist Statement The square shapes symbolize aspects of contemporary urban life,most of us living in apartments with neighbors closely above, belowand on the sides. Yet our relationships with them are often based on sympathy, understanding and assistance in times of need, assymbolized by the round shapes. The mirrors symbolize our desire toshow our feelings to others
