Work Description: 
A menacing, sharp black form juts into this painting from the bottom edge, slicing through a field of gray and white interlocking forms. Three forms dangle above the black form from the top center edge: one in brown, one in yellow, and one in black. A red accent lifeline runs through the black form at top, and a dark brown writhing line falls from the three forms through the white space directly below. Another yellow passage echoes the top center group along the lower left edge, and several emerald green accent strokes are painted across the center of the jagged black form at bottom center.
