Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Charles Blackwell

I’ve been operating on a note of serendipity, moving colors on paper or canvas.  Sometimes I have an image in my mind, but it all changes once I approach the surface, so I use by blindness to execute the final image allowing for it to take on a course of its own.  Producing pieces related to jazz music enables improvisation.  When I hear people say the work is inspiring, then I know that I have managed to create a synthesis between my art and my blindness, and the two move together, working in harmony.  It all comes together in the end.
