Blind: Oil Paintings by Roy Nachum
Fascinating series of oil on canvas paintings by Israeli artist Roy Nachum.
“Roy Nachum explores the boundaries between visual and non-visual perception, his artworks are aimed at people both with and without sight. Messages or poems are inserted in Braille to evoke sensation in the blind ‘viewer’ or participant akin to those felt experiencing a painting through sight.
He encourages people to touch and interact with the work believing that human interaction keeps the work alive and breaks the barrier between the viewer and ‘sacred object’.”Art Posted on April 22, 2014
