Poem on blanket:
“If there had been a pool it would have reflected us.”
BLANKET is a suggested imaginary landscape. The poem, written by Jim Hodges, is intended to be read in reverse as if the words were reflected in a pool of water…The blanket, which measures 52″ x 72″, is the exact size of Jim Hodges’ bed.
BLANKET was commissioned in 1998 by the Peter Norton Family, who commission an art edition each year to celebrate the Christmas season and holidays.
