Have you ever wondered how people with specific eye errors see the world? Philip Barlow, a Cape Town-based artist, has created a series of oil paintings that vividly shows the struggle of those who have myopia or nearsightedness, the most common refractive eyesight error.
At first glance, Barlow’s paintings look like photographs that are out of focus. But these realistic paintings perfectly portray the blurred effect that nearsighted people see when they take off their glasses, and let those with normal eye vision understand what it’s like to live with this condition. Of course, not only these colorful paintings will scratch that itch of curiosity, but they are also highly aesthetically pleasing and really are the modern art pieces that you've never seen before.
