Work Description: 
A large, fluttery crimson red form rises from the bottom edge and fills the center of this square-shaped canvas, extending on all sides into the bare canvas expanses beyond. A thin yellow form is just visible along the left edge, separated from the red region by a strip of unpainted canvas. A third fluttery form rendered in black pigment hovers along the right edge and top right corner. Overpowered by the giant red form, the black area splinters along its left edge as it battles for space at the top right corner. A flash of bright red-orange is placed near this skirmish on top of the red pigment.
