“When the ear begins to hear, and the eye begins to see; when the pulse begins to throb, the brain to think again; the soul to feel the flesh and the flesh to feel…” Emily Brontë
Works of art where eyes are the significant symbols have been part of my artistic vision for a number of years. My interest in eyes evolves from the proverb that the “Eyes are the Window to the Soul”. They are reflective of the aperture of the heart. Through the inner eye and the outer eye all things exist. I am currently using the eye symbol to explore moral consciousness in relation to the current earth changes and the mysteries of the inner eye of knowing. As the Native American proverb proclaims…”The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears”.
These images are macro photographs of the eyes, ears, noses etc. of cabinet
card photographic portraits from the turn of the century. They were taken with a 4x5 camera and enhanced with digital overlays. They are printed on metal.
