THE COLOR OF THIS LIFE IS WATER, 2003
Acrylic on Canvas
Eight Panels, 110"H x 107"W each

The color of a blind man's noon is white,
and is his night-time, too?
And does he feel it with his skin like a fish?
Does he have blues, are they bridal and serene,
or yellows, sunlike or urinous, does he remember?
Neural colors like the fleeting tones of dreams.
The color of this life is water.
