Display caption

This word poem is a commentary on paintings by the artist David Novros. Each block includes the same words, but in the lower half, the sequence is reversed. Letters written vertically in the upper section appear horizontally in the lower section, and vice versa. This structure echoes Novros's preoccupation with interlocking canvases.
