These enigmatic eyes were born out of my childhood doodles of the Japanese Manga faces that were popular in my school days.  Looking back, I marvel at the irony: a Korean girl, drawn to enormous western eyes and long legs of Japanese Manga characters. In this series, I rendered the eyes using geometric marks often used in Manga eyes. Close up, these gigantic eyes, that measure four feet across are no more than unintelligible abstract marks. Yet once recognized as eyes and glances, they evoke emotions such as envy and anxiety often prevalent in our voyeuristic yet isolating modern world.
