The faces are unforgettable: their glances indelible and mesmerizing, they are imbued with mystery and eroticism as they engage the viewer who is captivated by their haunting, though clement airs. And their eyes, especially, seem the vortex where emotions are identified and revealed. These faces of singular beauty each hold stories inside. They are the faces that graced innumerable pages of magazines such as Time, Omni, and Playboy. They graced the covers of novels and posters in New York at a time when the city needed such beauty to gaze upon, and gladly did. They remain inordinately hypnotic today and remain a remarkable body of work of the artist Mel Odom.
