Gareth Bate's Jewel Net of Indra

Our favourite "room" at the Come Up to my Room show at the Gladstone Hotel was our friend, Gareth's Jewel Net of Indra; a wall of circular mirrors and over 300 portraits of people Gareth considered iconic.
As you can see those people ranged from Osama bin Laden to Geronimo and, of course, the viewer is also reflected in the mirrors behind the acrylic paintings.
John and Shelley had a great time admiring the portraits and exclaiming about the ones we recognized.
Congratulations, Gareth! A wonderful concept beautifully executed. Certainly the piece is "Best in Show" in our opinion.
