The name came from traditional Tarot decks. During the development of one of my characters The Eye, a single eye with neutral emotions and long curly eyelashes, I found that the image of it has a strong healing and calming effect for myself. Due to the position of the iris and the pupil, its gaze contains an otherworldly quality. Like a deity with the highest power and broadest knowledge, it gazes upon and through your body without hesitation or judgment. This installation piece is my attempt to capture and convey that divine feeling. Its smaller-than-life-size and its position on the wall allow it to be viewed at eye-level without being overpowering or underpowering.
