Self Portrait by a Blind Man

48 Self portrait by a blind man.JPG

For a blind man to paint his self-portrait, the canvas must have a size that allows him to touch its surface guided by its edges, like a piano player knows his keyboard. Touching his face with one hand, he perceives no colors, only its texture. With the fingertips of his free hand, since he can’t use a brush with exactitude, he applies what he perceives with the other hand using white and black paints.

Touch is the eyes of the blind.
