Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

In the documentary on Derrida, he says something so interesting: the eyes never change. I never considered this before. The only part of our body that doesn't change is our eyes. Derrida said that is where you can still see who a person is.

In this piece I tried to connote the idea of being "deconstructed" by using a technique of painting with the pallet knife. It looks as if his face is carved out of the ether. This is a beautiful portrait with a bold focus on the face.

Some conversation questions for this piece: what do the eyes evoke? how does the style of the piece affect the treatment of the subject? how would you describe the style? How do the colors work with the black and white in the piece?

This is a painting of a philosopher. In what ways is the painting inviting philosophical thought?
