Artist's Description

This work was produced on a gessoed wooden panel. I have had this work in my head for many years and recently was able to start and complete it. I first laid out the basic grid, and the basic eye shape with pencil. Then I used various sized and colored acrylic and glass doll eyes, which were made into half spheres (so they could be glued to the flat surface of the board). I painted in a mixture of undertones and colors to each eye, expressing different flesh tones. Then I refined some details of shadow and highlight within each square. My final step was to use different colors of paints and india ink to drip from each eye, expressing fluid teardrops. The concept behind this work pertains to the universality of all human emotion (both pain and joy), yet defines the relativity of personal emotions. It expresses the notion of a mixture of individuals who experience emotional pain, spiritual pain, internal and external conflicts, and even the different causes and natures of joy. The work really came together and fulfilled the conceived inspiration (from within my heart and mind), coming to fruition in the physical result. Now I can move on, and possibly create other works of similar productions and concepts. The dimensions of the original panel are 30in. X 14in. It was produced in 2008.
