A few weeks ago, as a class we had opportunity to take a walking field trip to the Visual Arts Center, and got to see the work of Tom Condon.
When Condon was younger, he suffered from impaired vision and was temporarily blind, which led him to an interest in braille. Many of his art pieces are created using images of a braille textbook, which are digitally manipulated and then worked with physically using layers of waxes and paints.
His other series of work is created using images of color swatches: he digitally blurs them and lays them out in patterns, and then, like in his other work, takes the digital piece and then enhances it with wax and paints.
Out of the two series of work I personally found the series involving the braille to be more interesting and diverse. I especially liked the piece with the blue on the right.
