Javier Martin, the mind behind Blindness Light, intentionally places formations of color in this exact point of location where people reveal their vulnerabilities—in the eyes. The series harnesses elements of Pop art by appropriating advertising materials to shine a critical light on media. The works examine the fashion industry’s influence on beauty standards. This mixed media series is equal parts collage, neon light, and oil and acrylics.
