Eye to Eye

By Trebeca04

"The ear tends to be lazy, craves the familiar and is shocked by the unexpected; the eye, on the other hand, tends to be impatient, craves the novel and is bored by repetition." - W. H. Auden

"Eye To Eye"
There is certainly no boredom here.
This small 'memory mirror' came together effortlessly, with bits and bling from my studio seeming to position themselves exactly where they wanted to be on the wooden frame. It all started with the green eye in the center, fitting perfectly inside the vintage car emblem.
In the end, when I set the small mirror inside the frame, the surprise was the number of eyes looking back at me. There are 23 eyes on the front, (plus my own 2 eyes lin the mirror, for a total of 25). 
The back is collaged with the inside pages of a book on "cocktail party conversations". I tried to count the eyes on this illustration, but I stopped counting at 60 . . .
Later when it came time to give this piece a title, I considered: "Eye Level", "The Eyes Have It", "Cat Eye", "Here's Looking At You", "I See You", "Eye, Eye, Eye", and so on.
But then I came across the quote by W.H Auden, and I chose to title it "Eye to Eye" because the piece seems to come to life only when the viewer looks into the mirror and realizes that all those eyes are looking back.
