Between Two Waves of the Sea

Mineral Pigments on Kumohada, 66x89"

But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.

T.S.  Eliot, Four Quartets

Mineral Pigments, Gold Powder on Kumohada
89x66"
2003

At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.

T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Fire and Rose are One
Fire and Rose are One
Collection of Howard and Roberta Ahmanson
Mineral Pigments on Kumohada
89x66"

And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets (Little Gidding)

Than that of summer, neither budding nor fading,

Not in the scheme of generation.

Where is the summer, the unimaginable

Zero summer?

T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
