The eyes


In October 2020 I completed The Eyes for the entrance space of Art Quarter.

The piece is installed at the top of the corridor; as the space opens up, the public can view the work from varied perspectives. From afar the piece appears to be a drawing. As the viewer gets closer they see the lines float above the frame; realising the piece is made out of nail and thread.

The subject's eyes are deliberately gender-non-specific, so the viewer has no pre-conceived idea of who that person is. The eyes also have a focused look to them; demonstrating the vision of Art Quarter as something ambitious, strong but supportive and nurturing.

You can view The Eyes at Art.Quarter 14-15 Allison St. Digbeth, Birmingham B5 5TH
