EYE   1992   Part One


Eye became a collection of much of the work with xerox prints Chase did in the early eighties. (see Photography ) Moving these prints into a book form, allows the viewer to experience them in a much more intimate way than a gallery exhibition would. Many of the individual images come from originals that are part of collections of museums. (The Metropolitan, Princeton, George Eastman House, etc.)

Imperfections (blurs, tears, folds, etc.) form major themes in the work. The book is divided into three sections, and various variations on sleep, nature and body language run throughout the work.
