The Eyes Have It
Acrylic on Masa Paper, 2023
“The Eyes Have It,” takes inspiration from a mandala, a Buddhist composition designed to encourage meditation and healing. My mandala shows the cycles of the moon and eyes that signify a multifaceted perspective on the community and beyond. Eyes are the window to the soul, and they represent truth and insight.
I also responded to the “Astronomical Chart of the Sun and the Moon”, 1534, a monumental woodcut created by Veit Rudolph Specklin after Hans Holbein II. Renaissance artists were fascinated with the relationship of humans and the earth and expanded opportunities to discover and understand its many rhythms. The mandala colors radiate energy and potential.
