Mirror Imagery

Mirror Imagery

The idea behind this piece was to create an explanation of the coral reef using imagery only and allowing ideas of how coral reefs work together as eco-systems through illustration. I started roughing out sketches of the different species which inhabit coral reefs looking into plants and creatures. I decided to look into reflection to represent how water corrupts vision this then lead onto a mirrored effect. The final outcome is a mirrored piece, this also allows the eye to adjust and discover different images within the same piece.
