Li Fang

  Bedazzlement.
  And this un painted
  Blank canvas, empty. Bathed in sunlight.
 

And this black which obscures the pupil, the faces.

  Great expanses of colour. Pure. Faded.
  It's like a breeze carrying colours.
    Burning, eroding, bringing life to the body.
    And the eye. And the mind. Elsewhere.
         
    Michel Nau.
