He has a painting called “Disgust”, the quote reads, “I am looking at a ten or fifteen-pound object on my floor. It looks, however, as though it has no weight at all because the light has obscured and hidden its volume. All I can see is that it is two things: one, it is only a floor-an existing plane, and two, it is dark. Weight and volume are judgments of the mind.”
The publication of Toni’s Home finished after Slade’s death. She dedicated the book to him. Toni also did stop working for a period after his death, though the length of that time period is unknown.
