Ninth Connection: All-Seeing=Things Covered with Eyes
Anything with eyes gradually became things covered in eyes. In this detail from Thy Kingdom Come, ©2005, eyes that are not human eyes appear to cover a mysterious round shape. If this shape came to life floating in our world it would exist apparently without ears, nose, mouth, arms or legs. All it could do is see. Thinking about something that is all-seeing as perhaps lacking in other abilities is interesting to me. This drawing was made for the 2005 exhibition Ideas into Objects: Reinterpreting the Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci at the Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery, Cincinnati, Ohio.
