One of a series of 19 prints inspired by a short novel by D.H. Lawrence titled The Man Who Died. The prints are not a description of the book's narrative, but capture fleeting moments by giving shape to feelings and inner experiences that trace moments of existence inspired by the novel. Here, a series of circles in varying sizes in colors of red, yellow, mauve, black and blue float on a pattern of white lace on a black background.
