Blackness is green in a setting of grey and the surface as chalky and white as snow. Sharp edges are rounded, wood is metallic, black is green and green is white. White is being wiped, green emerges and black is as absent as green in winter. The powdery substance of snow is mimiced by lines of white traversing black which is not black but green. Blackness is green.
A tribute to Gertrude Stein, inspired by her work "Tender Buttons" (1914).
