In this piece, the artist extracted color combinations from images of body parts of his ailing father and correlating images of his own body parts.  The artist had no part in choosing or creating the actual colors.  The paints are displayed on 2 groups of floating shelves, the left hand side being the colors extracted from the father, and the right hand side being the colors extracted from the son, with each shelf representing a body part.  From top to bottom, the body parts are hair, brow/eye, mouth/chin, hands, belly, legs, feet. Both the artist and his father are/were colorblind.
