Work Description: 
A four-armed cobalt blue shape floats in front of a fluttery black and white field. While the majority of white spaces are created through Still leaving areas unpainted allowing the bare canvas to show through, several dashes of white paint are located along the right edge. A small crimson red shape interjects the composition at the top left edge and is echoed by a small dab of red below and to its right. Above this red dab, a teal shape hovers amid the black background, and a small yellow cross-shaped shape floats directly above near the top edge.
