This is a small 13″ x 13″ casein on canvas.

The detailed eye-ball in the upper left hand corner represents subtle vision, and the inner ear in the lower right hand corner represents subtle hearing.

I love the word Braincase. It’s exactly what it sounds like, the cranium enclosing the brain.

Note: I’ve used the same series of sounds in all the videos to this series of work. It’s created by artist and musician Joe Willie Smith and me.
