About this piece: In the past two years, I’ve had the chance to attend and observe hundreds of eye surgeries and procedures. The intricacy of the procedures and their outstanding outcomes inspired me to complete this abstract painting using the style of the famous Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky. In this painting, I’ve included a number of tools used in ophthalmic surgery: a needle, a scalpel, a caliper, sutures… and combined them in one colorful piece along with several other shapes and forms, leaving the rest of the interpretation to the viewer’s imagination.
