Feel with the eyes
As a closing of the project that Andrew Donohoe carried out during his residence in ´ace, it is exhibited in the Polyglot Room Feeling with the eyes.
This new series of engravings show us images of different elements of the urban environment that include surface textures, pavement, stones and other diverse objects that register the marks and patina of time and oxidation. Some shapes are repeated: organic spirals, worn marble, fluted outlines in horizontal lines, round and triangular matrices that create strong structural geometric shapes. The representation of tactile textured images in addition to the dialogue between geometric and organic forms are an expression of the artist’s marked pleasure.
FEEL WITH THE EYES (by Andrew Donohoe)
The development process of this work was a creative adventure of pure pleasure. All the images were collected in places that interested me and aroused a certain mystery during a visit to Buenos Aires the previous year. The city is, for me, like an exotic jungle full of plants and insects, both strange and beautiful, that each time I visit offers something more to discover.
The images obtained belong to different elements of the environment that I found in one of my favorite places that I visited often and were collected almost as a child can collect butterflies or insects of an unusual color. These images include the textures of the surfaces under my feet, pavement, stones and other diverse objects that register the time stamps, oxidation, a patina that evolves with the pass of the time.
