"VISION AND PERSPECTIVE"
ACRYLIC ON CANVAS 93X93 cm
My work exhibited in Mansoon Art Fest 2019 @ Public Library Art Gallery Kottayam.
Actually this work is a tribute to the Great Dutch Ophthalmologist Herman Snellen who designed a chart to test visual acuity in 1862.He found that two distant objects to see seperately it should subtend an angle of one minute of an arc at the nodal point of eye.This is the basic scientific truth and its principle.Still we are using this chart to test visual acuity.Why I choose this chart as my subject because every people is having vision in their eyes.Vision is not just reading the letters on the box.It has got many complicated mechanisms during the development and it has many components like binocularity,colour vision,contrast sensitivity,stereopsis etc..
So what I'm telling is vision will develop natuarally as the human grows. But what about the perspective? So vision and perspective are two different phenomena.All are having more or less good vision in their eyes but the pespective differs in each individuals.We can apply this to each and every recent or past disasters due to lack of pespectiveness. The perspective of the mankind towards the soceity should improve so that we can gift the next generation a good world.
Finally I'm trying to tell by my painting is pespective of vision should change in every individual but not the vision.
