- In the eye of the beholder, 2015 — Also crafted by Perkins, this painting shows a rainbow-colored abstract eye. Reportedly, the artist herself said, “…’Blue Eyes’ and ‘In the eye of the beholder’: ‘They have the same meaning to me, abstractifying modern beauty and beauty standards. I wanted to show faces with peculiar proportions in a very colorful and maybe uncommon way.
- Long long time ago, 2016 — Painted by Polish artist Dagmara Rybak, this piece is a glittery, dreamy feast for the eyes. Speaking of this vintage-looking piece of art, Rybak said, “The originality of this painting comes from glittering elements on the foreground which concealing their hidden meaning. The ‘hot’ captures, the awareness of fleeing time and unique moments… all these give us the creative power to choose our favorite path.”
