Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Charles Blackwell

In the past few years, I have come to the understanding that my blindness can be useful in terms of creating art pieces. My blindness pushes me more towards imagination, causing me to play with images that come into my thoughts, some from daily life, and others from cultural involvement and experiences. The process of putting them on paper or canvas is where my blindness actually becomes a helpful tool, pushing my creativity towards the abstract, dreamlike, and making magical realism come alive in the visual art piece.
