THE EVOLUTION OF EYES

THE EVOLUTION OF EYES

2018

Anteros Arts Foundation,
Norwich, Norfolk. 
November – December 2017. 

‘The Evolution of Eyes’ is a sculptural constellation
inspired by piles and piles of books, which the Japanese 
have a word for- all the books in piles waiting to be read. 

These include volumes about kabuki, marshes and swamps,

the botanical drawings of Barbara Everard, geological strata,
ecosystems, frogs and toads and how they lay their eggs
and act as barometers, talismans, fart clouds, science fictions,

what the inside of space shuttles look like, HP Lovecraft,
puppets, Carl Jung, folk festivals, big shoes, trilobyte,
evolutionary timelines, picto-graphs of things that are

very very- such as very very deep like the Mariana Trench,
or very very large, like the space between planets. 

Hazel branches, sand, mother of pearl, dried poppies,

dye, paper, metals, jesmonite , fabric, plaster, and drawings.
