"SIGHT SEEING"

10x10, oil on panel, $140.00
Chicago is just a wonderland for art.  "Eye" by Tony Tasset at Pritzker Park in the loop  is a sight to behold.  Emerging from the subway at Jackson and State we found ourselves in view of this monumental work.  What a fun exhibit to see in the middle of the city, surrounded by buildings, overhead trains, restaurants and so much more.

ewwwww! Good job!
I just watched a program on Ovation channel last night on the wonderful Chicago institute museum. You're so lucky!!

Oh, wow.............great work but, I think I'd almost be scared to meet the person who buys this. I'd wonder what other body parts they have hanging around. It's a really fun piece, a conversation starter for sure.

This is hysterical Dori...and you really captured Bob and Elliot!

Marian Fortunati said...

Too funny!
Wonderful work, Dory!

Julie Hill said...

OK...this is weird..not your painting Dori, of course...but the eyeball...just plain weird. But I have to say- very well done, and highly entertaining...and I can "see" why you did this.

Gwen Bell said...

Eye-catching to say the least...a conversation piece for the collector for sure.

This is a really fun painting, and the title is great! I love all those juicy strokes you used on the iris of the eyeball.
