Pakayla Biehn

I was browsing around Artistaday and I came across Pakayla Biehn. I'm really into her Double Exposure Series....I like the layering of figures creating nice movement in the paintings.

Pakayla Biehn’s most recent body of work concerns her congenital vision disability, called Strabismus. Her eyesight consists of mutually exclusive images trying, unsuccessfully, to bond into a cohesive impression. She uses her own embodied identity as a starting point for her paintings and installations. Her goal is to find a visual language to negotiate the intersection of imagery and create a similar perspective to give the viewer an understanding of her own optical condition.
