Work Description: 
A vertical red form rises from the bottom center edge into a composition dominated by bare canvas. The tip of the red form juts into a thick black form at the top left. A orange form resides in the top right quad and runs down parallel to the red form at center. Three small forms in blue, yellow and white are placed around the orange form at top right. A mysterious black chemical phenomenon covers the orange pigment in this photograph, and pigment transfer from the central red form can be seen across the bare canvas along the forms left edge.
