Me and Mine
Assemblage of found objects.

Dale Copeland 2021

Whoever stands in front of this will see themselves and their world.
Just as in Jan van Eyck's Fandolfini 'Wedding' portrait, a convex mirror confines all the surroundings to that one circle.
Me and Mine.

And at the back, open the door to where the clockworks used to live, and there's a leather-lined hiding place.
For a diary, old letters, a sentimental trinket?
You and yours.

The small Buddha gently showing the way of righteousness, and the other watching your reality? (And scratching his head in bemusement?)

Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
