Statement

Looking through the eyes of another, the same situation may appear differently than it does to oneself. A person’s perspective changes from time to time and differs from each individual. ”Ways of Seeing” is taking into account these varied representations, dissecting a picture from many angles. Multiple pictures of the same image is, what I have tried to present here. As it goes in the title….”It’s the way we see things”…the glass can be half empty or half full, whichever way one prefers to view it. Hope and desires is what motivates action….and dreams are vehicles to relive those moments again and again. “…if I had wings to fly “, quotes from a Greek vase painting, the image of a woman flying on a bird, that is her vehicle / wings to carry further an indulgence into secret wishes, the way we see them to be in our minds.
