Behind the art
I have always been attracted to eyes. When I draw I always seem to start with the eyes first and then the painting or drawing evolves from there. I have never understood why someone would want to cover up the lines or markings on their face. It is the eyes that reflect the true nature of the person. The eyes are linked directly to the heart. The invitation or challenge to the viewer of my art is to look beyond any revulsion or strain they see in the face and see person. The struggle in our lives is not from outside but within.
