Daggers, lasers, or maybe just a steely glare. All things that can be shot from one’s eyes. Figuratively, of course… unless you’re a superhero. Artist Carolina Amorim traces the gaze of her models with coloured thread. Some travel in straight lines, others in geometric shapes. A daydream, perhaps? Lost in thought? There are no vacant stares here. In any case, Amorim doesn’t stop there. Other pieces feature triangular smoke plumes from a cigarette, creases in a skimpy negligee, and cheeky stitching where a young miss’s underpants might be. Her use of colour varies, sometimes a light stain, other times, boldly applied… but always to great effect.
