Planes of Unreality

The stick figure in my composition below was inspired by Miró. On half of the paper, I incorporated my brother’s wandering eye and a freeze-frame of his hands, shown in positions where he typically held them. [Note: my older brother Michael is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal.]

On the other half of the paper, divided by a yellow-blue border, is a representation of me. I am looking at Mike in his own element. The planes do not mix. They are like oil and water.

Since the abstract image of Mike and the figurative image of me are both the representations conceived by an artist, neither is real.
