"I have never been able to shut my eyes without seeing pictures, persistent projections showing details of tantalizing new things to make. Even as a small child my fantasies were about getting pictures out of my mind, through my hands, and into reality. It was as if the only way I could feel myself to be alive was to surround myself with things of my own invention." Kit Williams
Out of One Eye is a spellbinding voyage into the mind and artwork of Kit Williams, author of Masquerade, the phenomenal best seller that had all the world hunting a buried treasure!
Kit Williams, a uniquely versatile painter and meticulous craftsman, leads us on an extremely personal guided tour of his exquisite creations. Completely self-taught, Williams reveals the full extent of his many skills in Out of One Eye, describing for readers, in words and full-color pictures, the thoughts, techniques, and inspiration behind each piece of art. He discusses an early failed effort that taught him the importance of method and style; his experiments in working the frame of the painting into the subject; and his combination of paint and woodwork to produce magical and delicate orbs, cabinets, and triptychs. Out of One Eye is a rich, absorbing look at one of today's leading artists. [via]
