The 'Paradox' referred to in the title is a result of how the work was made, using four mirrors. The central body of the work is the reflection of a reflection, the edges of the canvas are a straight reflection and the small head is a reflection of a reflection of a reflection. In starting to paint the edge of the canvas, which represented the painting of the painting, I discovered there was nothing to paint except the support bar of the easel and that the image didn't exist until I painted it, but I couldn't paint it until it existed - hence my Paradox.
