JEW/ISH projects > Eyes Like Black Cherries | 2008

Eyes Like Black Cherries/Eygelech vi di Shvartse Karshelech is a series of drawings made using Black Cherry Juice. The title phrase is yiddish, taken from a Klezmer song about a lost love. Her beauty is described by the dark color of her eyes. The visual source material for the drawings is the patterns found in my own iris.
