Eyes of Art

Eyes of Art is a derivative composition focusing on three art movements: neo classical realism (Davinci’s “Mona Lisa”), the architectural rendering of an eye from the Bauhaus (a 1940s German school of design) and the surreal eye (from M. C. Escher’s “Self Portrait”). We start life attempting to, wanting to be real, adult, people who are a part of society. As adults, we architect lives to contribute to our culture and provide for ourselves and families. Toward the end of our lives, we realize how surreal and temporary life really is. The skull that Escher puts in the pupil of the eye represents death, which is inevitable for us all. The skull is repeated in the composition. When the viewer can back up to see a bigger picture of an eye in the background. There is a bigger picture of the impact we have on those around us while we go through life. We don’t know exactly what that impact is. We just know there is a bigger picture.
