I personally find The Eyes Have It as well as your series of outsized eyeball paintings fantastically seductive in color and texture, but equally disturbing in subject/context. While formally it can be difficult to draw emphasis away from such a strong focal point, the ropey and veined lines connecting the eye to the syringes create pooling areas of visual interest. The eye itself delights in saturated blue-greens and yellow ochre. It’s evocative of the earth itself, or a prized marble. Even the downward pulling lid with scraggly lashes envelops the center with pink and purplish liquidity. I see the spiraled circular shape just below the eye as a secondary oculus- hypnotic in its centrally positioned spiral. The symmetry is also suggestive of a stacked totem, or iconic reliquary. While treated as precious, the secular subject is far from the sacrosanct or revered.
