DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?

Do you see what I see? Is taking place at Outlined Gallery, as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe in London. The exhibition includes pieces by artists who are part of the Windows of the Soul project and contains braille art, traditional paintings, print work and other examples of work by or with visually impaired people describing what they see to a professional artist. 

 

In the UK, more than 2 million people are living with sight loss. Of these, around 340,000 are registered as blind or partially-sighted.1 The aim of the exhibition is to raise awareness of the realities of sight loss and to quash presumptions that art is not possible if someone’s sight is lost or impaired. The artists also strive to demonstrate that their art is beautiful and remarkable in its own right and that their sight impairment can enhance and not hamper it. It is also important for the artists to show their work as a collective, truly highlighting and boosting their own and the overall sight-loss message. The pieces show a broad spectrum of the impact of some sight-loss conditions.

 

Since collaborating, and now with support from The Outlined Gallery, this group of artists have seen the interest in their work increase and awareness is growing. Led by Elizabeth Manuel, there is excitement and interest in the work and what it means beyond the group. With Elizabeth at the helm, it is hoped that there will be many more developments including plans for further collaborations. Elizabeth will work closely with artist Lindsey Whitelaw who led the Windows of the Soul launch in 2021.

Elizabeth says, ‘I am proud to be at the forefront of such exciting times for this group of wonderful artists and people. None of us knew at the beginning that this would become so important to each and every one of us. We each have our own stories and journeys to tell, yet sometimes our shared experiences are what has made our group so powerful. I am enthusiastic to see what happens with this exhibition and in the future showing that art is available and possible for anyone even if they have lost sight’.

 

The exhibition will run from 10th June to  25th June at the Outlined Gallery in Nine Elms, Wandsworth (Include link) 10 am to 10pm  (closed Sunday Monday Tuesday)
