During the years 2003 to 2008 I had been creating a series of paintings based on my eyes. The series of works was an exercise on observing light, colour, form and space - looking abstractly and painting how I was seeing my own eyes, whether left or right or both, delving into an internal dialogue with myself in their construction. Through these exercises I explored paint and its application, building up the layers, scraping back and experiment with colour to form these paintings.
This painting in one of many I have created through these years and the titles are in response to what I saw in the pupil once the painting was finished and put to one side.
