From the show:
"Life is detectable in the eyes of both humans and animals-- there is an uncanny connectivity to others through the use of sight. The series of works allows the outside world to look in, reading eyes for signs of life, intelligence, mood, or metaphysical existence. What is reflected back from each painting is the sense of an otherworldly intellect, balancing between familiar and uncomfortable.
Presenting eyes without context, or placing them in unexpected places, brings intuitive human senses forward in unexpected ways. The paintings explore impressions beyond what is present. Color, structure, and shape are brought together to push the boundaries of what is perceived to be reality, and what may exist beyond it.
Eyes present several examples of visual duality-- hard and soft, wet and dry, light and dark. Stylistic application of media is intended to further stretch these concepts, and to explore them in an unconventional way."
