“The Cyclops sees no perspective, one eye is staring straight ahead. He is caught in his own field of vision. The doll he holds is stiff as a plank. This figure is derived from the life-size pull string doll self-portrait I made in 2002. A pull string doll has no will of its own, it is at the mercy of whoever wants to play with it.” – Wouter van Riessen
