My Art Work - ciroattardo
Eye See You
-18x24 Acrylic on canvas
As a child I was impressed by the realistic eyes of the statue of St Lucy in church.  On my trips to Sicily in 2010 and 2012 in Monreale and Cefalu, I experienced the eyes of the mosaic Byzantine Christ follow me as I walked about.  This was by design and replicated in 3 churches in Italy.  So I tried to create these effects in this piece.  I use acrylic black and white matte. And added glossy illusions with some expression to the face.  I think it worked.  It creeped out the patients in the waiting room so I had to move it.  ...Would be great in an ophthalmology office.  This one I can sell. (Its too creepy for me as well)
