Sleep... No It Is Not Sleep, That Is Merely The Outward Seeming, polymer-painted rope, pencil, cotton duck, 89"x72"x6"

Based musically on Bach Fugue XVI in 4 Voices and also on a poem about wheat which reads "Sleep - no it is not sleep. This is merely the outward seeming. A secret work is going forward in the heart of the grain, which bursts its envelope and allows the precious shoot to spring toward the light."
