Work Description: 
A jumbled mass of primarily white and black abstracted forms sits in the center of the composition surrounded by a gray-green background. Accents in red, yellow, green and blue help to lead the viewer's eye around the work. Several geometric shapes such as the zig-zag form at center left and the parallel black lines found throughout suggest a mechanical theme or origin, yet the two white dots at the top right and the curves found in some of the form's outline simultaneously propose an anatomical/human quality.
