Check Out Jason Edmiston's Mondo Art Series 'Eyes Without a Face'
Another week, another cool collection of magnificent artwork from the collectible arthouse Mondo. This time it's artist Jason Edmiston with his exhibition called "Eyes Without a Face," with about 150 paintings focusing only on the eyes of some famous figures of pop culture. They're all 3:1 aspect ratio inspired by the field of vision of a standard rearview mirror of a car, but the sizes of the paintings themselves vary in size as Edmiston told BuzzFeed, "I’ve got tiny characters that are a half-inch wide all the way up to a seven-and-a-half foot wide painting. It’s quite a range." These are pretty fantastic pieces. Look!
Here's just some of the pieces from "Eyes Without a Face" from Mondo (see more at BuzzFeed):
Edmiston says movies have a big presence in this show, "“I’d say 75% are movies — that’s the most visually interesting — but I’ve got television, video games, people in the news, cartoons, comic books, and toys." As you can see above, many are obvious, but Edmiston hopes that all aren't so easy to recognize, "I think that’s a big part of the fun of the show." You can see some more at BuzzFeed and there will be plenty more at the actual Mondo gallery in Austin, Texas when the show begins on March 13th and runs through April 4th.
