Work Description: 
A deep red form rises from the bottom center edge only about a quarter of the way up the vertically-oriented canvas, beginning to fill a column of empty canvas that fills the center of the work. White pigment sits along bot sides of the empty canvas, running from top to bottom. A bolt of black paint flashes into the scene from the top center, impeding upon the bare canvas column. Just to its left, a small isolated orange form floats in space.
