Graphite on Paper


The eyes are the window to the soul. A statement such as this describes a conundrum that has plagued humanity since its beginning; what lies in the mind of those around you, those you’re wary of, and those you trust and understand. The vast expanse of a single mind that lays behind one set of eyes is both terrifying and humbling. In my work, Foreign the notion of understanding of the thoughts of others, particularly those close to you is explored. The eyes in question belong to my mother, a person who I have known all my life, a person I trust deeply. The intense close-up on the supposed windows to soul should reveal all if we trust the wisdom in this phrase but even I cannot say I know what my mother is thinking. I trust her without question but even someone I have known all my life cannot reveal their soul to me through their eyes.
