Marbled Eye by Amy Crook

Marbled Eye by Amy Crook

Years ago and miles away I learned a little bit about making marbled papers, the kind used in the endpapers of wonderful old books. While dropping in colour to try to make a pattern, something interesting formed, and I captured it before it could be disrupted — a perfect eye in the middle of all the random swirls.

Sometimes, art is about knowing when to stop at accidental beauty.

Marbled Eye, 8.5″x11″ marbling on paper, not for sale.
