Harding Meyer paints faces, just faces, but the first thing one notices is their eyes. They are at the center of the 46-year-old artist's work; they are its core element. They catch the viewer's eye; they literally force him into the picture. The neck of the portrayed persons is cut off and their hairline is barely visible. The viewer hardly can avoid those eyes and he is unable to interrupt communications. This makes Meyer's art so powerful.
