Today I decided to do a drawing based on a quotation from James Joyce´s Ulysses.
I offer it as a very reasonably priced print or the original, on Indian handmade paper with gold thread going through it, for the princely sum of €100.00 to the first person interested. Postage etc paid.
The size is 21 x 31 cm.
“INELUCTABLE MODALITY OF THE VISIBLE: AT LEAST THAT IF NO MORE, thought through my eyes. Signatures of all things I am here to read, seaspawn and seawrack, the nearing tide, that rusty boot. Snotgreen, bluesilver, rust: coloured signs. Limits of the diaphane. But he adds: in bodies. Then he was aware of them bodies before of them coloured. How? By knocking his sconce against them, sure. Go easy. Bald he was and a millionaire, maestro di color che sanno. Limit of the diaphane in. Why in? Diaphane, adiaphane. If you can put your five fingers through it, it is a gate, if not a door. Shut your eyes and see".
