Sherry Mayo


Safe Haven, 2014 Tondo Paintings, Vinyl Gilted Frames, Mirrors


Sherry Mayo questions the notions of self-portrait, selfies, and surveillance. Self-portraits by the artist were painted while considering her own observation a form of surveillance. These portraits hang alongside convex mirrors in gilded frames, mimicking paintings while reflecting the viewer’s face. Above the mirrors hang round surveillance cameras that look down at the viewer, on and always watching. Safe Haven asks the viewer to look in the mirror, and to reflect on his or her self-image in a world where someone, including ourselves, is always watching.
