Observation, Eyes Closed is a series of drawings which question the common notions of observation relative to figurative art. Based upon the documentation of afterimages (the lingering visual impressions left by a flash of light that are “seen” when we close our eyes) the drawings present as a colorful void, an abstracted representation, a challenge to the historical figurative genre, and a reinvention of the observational practice.
