The human eye is able to piece together pieces of media to form a full picture so nothing ever seems too scattered, which is exactly the case with the work of Nikki Douthwaite whose art is compiled entirely of tiny pieces of paper dots.
The portraits range from depicting music icons like Jimi Hendrix or John Lennon to heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali. From far away, the portraits look like any other; it's only upon closer inspection that we can see that the artwork is made from hundreds of tiny, variously shaded dots that interconnect with one another to create a solid image.
The works by Douthwaite are beautifully made and make one appreciate the wonders that the human eye is capable of experiencing.
