Description

"Eye of the Beast" plays upon a non-representational, abstract frame referencing my Jack Russell terrier. Presenting the head itself displays a sense of drama with the viewer only seeing from the perspective of the headless dog. The rest of the scattered shapes are from the body of the animal, but close into the head as if it was a source of light. The saturated colors make the eyes pupil clear with showcasing it's direction to the far left, staring off from the viewer's presence. This represents how our companions can vision their own world differently than we do and reaching to expand upon that worldview.
