Mal de Ojo Mal de Ojo, The Evil Eye. No matter what you call it, the "evil eye" is unwanted in cultures around the world. In Latin American culture, "mal de ojo" is caused when one looks at another with envy and it is believed to inflict injury or bad luck. This painting was part of a series from a recent exhibition called PAUSE. The primary focus of this series was the visual exploration of the beauty of things that are unpleasant and yet beautiful when looked at from a different angle. Things or concepts that give a person a reason to pause. Mal de Ojo is one manifestation of this concept captured in saturated colors and line work presented on a grand scale.
