They say the eyes are the windows to the soul—that what the words and actions don't belie, the eyes will. The eyes are the keys to the secrets of the self, that intangible sum of the individual that we call the soul. Since childhood, my art has focused on the eyes—in my work, the eyes (or an eye) have always dominated, drawing the viewer to a thing that looks back at him or her. Secrets are exchanged in a glance. What is she thinking? Why is he sad? Look at his eyes.
