About the Project

This work is an soft pastel piece, sized 11x17 inches, and the first installment of a three-part series about the similarities between the workings of the mind and machinery.

Gears of the Mind represents how the brain's gears are constantly turning, processing and obtaining more information.

Special attention was given to perspective, most notably the difference between the foreground sharpness and detail versus the looser shapes of the background.
