Work Description: 
A tangle of black and umber pigment fills the left two thirds of this canvas. A maroon flame-like form rises from the bottom left as a ghostly vertical white form snakes its way from the bottom right edge up to the top right corner, dominating the right third of the work. A small flash of yellow enters the scene from the top left edge, and an even smaller stroke of orange is found along the top right edge.
