Eye Made You Look

Adam Bock's avatar Adam Bock

Artist Statement: Ce ne sont pas des yeux--(trans.) These are not eyes. These are canvas substrates covered in carefully arranged strokes of paint. They are inanimate objects. That being said, can these objects make eye contact? Can a painting gaze back or follow you around the room? When you turn around do you get the unnerving feeling that you're being watched? Can you see what an object seems to be seeing? In a sea of visual noise...Eye Made You Look.
