He becomes the field as he cultivates it, and, in turn he is cultivated by what he creates. The process is messy: horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines haphazardly suggest golden wheat stalks in the fields, as they embody the repetitive action pick up, let go; pick up, let go; pick up, let go. Body and sun and earth dissolve in the broad strokes of the 1 golden legs and feet, as the alchemy—that is art, that is life— transforms dirt and flesh into light. The observer’s eye is not meant to rest; it has to pull, from the light, a small, subtle form of a human being. Otherwise, all is flame; and earth; and stars. The sower sows his own yearning for the infinity of possibility, as he becomes the art of being immortal and alive.
