This is a close up of the eye of a larger portrait of Sophie that I made between May 2010 and January 2011. The whole painting is made from poems which Sophie chose. They have personal significance to her and have therfore become part of her. The text was printed using a standard printer from a computer which was then dissected taking out the spacing between each line as it was applied. Using word software the tone on the text and its background was altered according to the part of the picture being painted.
