What is the meaning to Brett Whiteley's self portrait in the studio?

Like a number of other major paintings of this period inspired principally by Matisse, it exudes a sense of sumptuous living and the liquid presence of the harbor through what Whiteley called 'the ecstasy-like effect of Ultramarine blue'. His tiny, mirrored self-portrait also reflects the tendency of Eastern art to portray man as merely part of a larger landscape. However this painting also hinted at a darker side as Wendy Whiteley explained in 1995: "... he was warning himself and other people watching. It was the cage of his interior, his addiction, the window or a glimpse of possible escape into paradise: the escape from one's psyche." (Australian Art Department, AGNSW, 2000)
