We're excited to announce our next gallery show, EYES WITHOUT A FACE, featuring a collection of original art by Jason Edmiston based on 1:1 representations of some of pop culture’s most iconic eyes.
EYES WITHOUT A FACE will feature approximately 150 original pieces inspired by film, music, comics, video games, toys and more. Each piece will be presented in life-sized proportions, from tiny plastic toy people, humanoid actors, to giant beasts and more. The concept allowed Edmiston to curate a wide spectrum of characters for the gallery in a way that made thematic sense.
Discussing the genesis of the show’s concept Edmiston said, “I had the idea for the show when I was working on my last solo exhibition for Mondo Gallery. I was driving around town with my wife bouncing concepts off of her. I checked my rear view and had the idea. The shape of the mirror made me think of just using a tight cropping of eyes for the basis of a show. I also kind of wanted to see what it would feel like to be in a gallery surrounded by eyes staring at you. It should be quite an experience to stand in the center of the gallery and slowly rotate 360 degrees, creating a feeling of being watched by your heroes.”
The show will kick off with an opening night reception on March 13 from 7 – 10pm and will run during regular hours (Tuesday through Saturday 12pm - 6pm) until April 4. The gallery Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.
