Eyes as windows to the world by Marc Quinn. Can you imagine that these planet-like images are eyes painted in oil? British artist Marc Quinn was born in London in 1964, he is the author of these extremely detailed oil paintings. The title of the series “We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars,” appears to look more like space and galaxies than people’s eyes, drawing on the idea of our eyes being windows to the world. The paintings look so natural that at first glance they seem to be photographs. The eyes first appear to be symmetrical, but look closer and you’ll see that they all have certain artifacts and subtleties that make them quite unique.
