Ralph Ellison: Invisible Man
I remember that I’m invisible and walk softly so as not awake the sleeping ones. Sometimes it is best not to awaken them; there are few things in the world as dangerous as sleepwalkers.
Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man
My 2010 painting ‘Rock Bottom Riser’, mocked-up as a cover for Ralph Ellison’s classic novel Invisible Man. Below is the original painting, which has been tucked away under my bed for almost a decade, hidden away, much like the protagonist of Ellison’s novel.
