If looks can kill, then the images in this exhibition need to come with a warning. As windows to the soul, the eyes tell it all. Fitting then that the artworks in this exhibition, many of which are self-portraits, show figures with intense expressions. Their penetrating gazes trigger an exchange or mental interaction between the viewer and subject. All this intensity, however, does not necessarily signal mental imbalance, but rather reflects the potency of the sitters emotions. Gaze into their eyes and see if you can measure the depth of the forces within them.
