Gerald Shepherd: Cataracts One & Two

I got cataracts in both eyes in the Nineties; having operations in 1994 1nd 1998 – which unfortunately was before it was commonplace to rectify myopia during the operation, so I still wear glasses.  I did a series of paintings at the end of the decade based on my experience of temporary blindness; luckily my eyes deteriorated at different times so I was never seriously inconvenienced.

Unfortunately this photograph isn’t very good – this wasn’t the strongest painting in the set either.
