This work focuses on the human eye and all of its magnificent detail. I'm pushing boundaries into a new technique that I'm developing and I'm experimenting with a larger scale.
I spent many years as a scientist studying the eye and I've drawn them since I was quite young.
In fact, I recent gave a TEDx talk where I talked about this. Watch this space for the video, when it's available on YouTube.
Are they the "windows to the soul”?
What can you learn when you study/render the eyes of another?
What commonalities and differences can you appreciate?
Through precise detail with watercolor, carbon dust, chalk, ink & sharpie, these works ask you to explore the seemingly "everyday" so you might realize that no human eye is commonplace at all.
