Middle Eye


edition of 25


paper size: 765 x 560mm 

To coincide with Chris Heaphy's second solo exhibition with Gow Langsford Gallery, Moutakere in 2012, Heaphy produced a series of five limited edition screenprints. As with his paintings, the series of two-colour prints are filled with intricate images. Although each symbol could be interpreted in multifarious ways, the viewer is challenged to consider the sum of their parts in a rich array of colour and densely layered meaning. The eye oscillates between the elaborate imagery and the greater composition, and both in the act of honing in and panning out, ever-increasing images-within-images are revealed.
