People provide me with endless inspiration. Our motivations, beliefs, opinions and perspectives are infinite. For every layer peeled away, there is always another below it. I am interested in the human connection created when looking into someone’s eyes. Why is it that it’s difficult to look directly into someone’s eyes and lie? Why do I divert my gaze if I’m not feeling confident? And why is it more intense to look directly into someone’s eyes and say, “I love you?”
“Edye” is a 3 dimensional wall sculpture that has been printed and painted using a acrylic and a digitally simulated multiple exposure process I’ve developed.
I began by taking close up photographs of my friend’s eyes. By overexposing the photos, the lines of her face and the shape of her mouth, other facial cues disappeared. In stripping away that context, I found that her naked eyes revealed a sense of intensity, mystery and character.
