"I've been using a lot of eyes in my own work. It's such a universal theme that evokes perception, awareness, wisdom but also protection and watchfulness. Keeping an eye out for others. To look at the eyes here, it's like the art work is looking back at us too, on behalf of those who lived here and used to look out those windows and doors."
