The See . Saw series
by L Filipe dos Santos
consists of before and after pictures of his sketchbook. The "before" pics look a lot like ink blots, but they are actually gouache stains that the artist draws over. It's intriguing that he includes a photo of the stains before he drew over them, because it lets me first imagine what I would see in them myself. That makes it all the more interesting to compare how Santos' creative interpretation of the stains is so very different from my own. What do you see?
