Artist's Statement

I had a macular hole in my right eye. Surgery required. Leading up to the diagnosis, I had a sometimes spectacular light show in my eye. Beautiful bursts of colors in circular form, with inspiring after images. I recorded them on paper with pencils and pastels. After surgery, the flashes abated but then came back as less than circular creatures. In the reprise the drawings combined several on a single page with the interpretation more expressionistic. I encourage staring closely at them and then  looking away, allowing the after images to entertain.
