Beauty's in the eye of the beholder.

The Eye of the Artist: The Work of Devorah Sperber
Brooklyn Museum
Brooklyn, NY, January 26- May 6, 2007

New York artist, Devorah Sperber deconstructs familiar masterpieces to address the way the brain processes visual information versus the way we think we see.

Using ordinary spools of thread, Sperber creates pixelated, inverted images of familiar art pieces, which appear as colorful abstractions to the naked eye.

When viewed with optical devices, however, the works becomes immediately recognizable as the famous paintings.

A clear acrylic sphere, positioned in front of each work, functions like the human eye and brain.
