Between the idea and the reality
mixed media assemblage
ivory billiards ball, mother-of-pearl shell spoon, whalebone rod (from French schoolmaster's cane, Akaroa)
in wooden knife box with Japanese paper. Borer holes filled with copper.
by Dale Copeland, 2008

Out of reach. Always reaching, never getting.
'Man never is, but always to be blessed'?
The title is from the TS Eliot poem,
The Hollow Men
Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
I love his work.
