Water and Colour Blind Test Art

Recently my family received a number of various special and beautiful work of art from our friend Alex Kapraras. The artist explains his new work, claiming: 

"My recent work creates connections and metaphors that may not be predictable or seen immediately. The image is the subtext that allows the viewer to interact in order to consider a story.
The connection is between the water and the colour blind test. I see this as a game, as a natural phenomenon: half necessity and half coincidence.

Colour blindness means that the person has trouble seeing red, green. In one type of test, you look at sets of coloured dots and try to find a pattern in them.

My purpose is to create an art work with those tests and water droplets. Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient.
Uncertainty and unknown, that is what make game so exciting.
Whoever plays, leaves behind reality and dives into its world."
