EYE WORKS

 

I have always been attracted to the multiple, to repetition, patterning and infestation qualities and I have often used the image of an eye, usually my own as a motif, a sign of communication, of the regarded and regarding, a dialogue. But using the mass-produced plastic googly eye translates well for the message of these works.  

The googly eye, in its perfect circle, perfect dot, perfect shine, provides not only the exact multitude materiality I want but also adds a new spooky otherness element to the work. The redemption of the everyday through its transformation into a new thing, a new meaning. See individual works for more details.
