AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE
What does it mean to look at something that is no longer visible? How to transform looking into seeing. Does seeing then happen in the eyes or in the mind? I am looking at an old photograph of a young woman named Luba. She is before my eyes now, but what did her eyes see then? I touch the picture with my eyes countless times and my hand touches the canvas countless times. I see, but does seeing allow me to understand anything? Should I understand anything? When I look, my eyes try to see everything that is visible, as close as possible, without the aim of understanding anything. Drawing prolongs looking and my hands become a bridge for seeing.
