About this artwork
In 1918, in New York, Man Ray decided to paint without making use of any of the traditional tools of the painter-neither an easel, nor brushes, palette, or tubes of color. Instead, he used a spray gun, and he called the resulting paintings “aerographs.” The All-Seeing Eye, while not an “aerograph,” is informed by Man Ray’s experiments with industrial techniques.
