To the Unknown Helper #18: Reflections on Mahler



Edward Nilges, “To the Unknown Helper as of 23 July 2010”. Acrylic on canvas, 50×60 cm.

I continue to develop and modify the forms in grisaille.

We play at paste,
Till qualified for pearl,
Then drop the paste,
And deem ourself a fool.
The shapes, though, were similar,
And our new hands
Learned gem-tactics
Practising sands.

Emily Dickinson
