Figurative visual art is always an abstraction in that the subject is re-interpreted on the canvas, in the carved stone, etc. Even in the case of photography, seen as a faithful reproduction of what is in front of the lens, the eye will choose where it travels across the image, where it lingers, and what it ignores. Physiologically, the human eye also registers what it sees by combining the colours red, blue and green in various proportions. Eva Knoll uses mathematics to explore these ideas in a series of images that reflect the way her own eyes travel, linger, ignore.
