Work Description: 
A tall narrow brown form enters the vertical composition from the bottom center and rises parallel to the right edge until it runs off the top edge. A thin black line bisects this form running from top to bottom. Another, larger black form sits in the center of the composition. A wavy, yellow form hovers directly above this black form with two circular blue forms sitting directly to its left. A single red dagger-like form shoots into the center of the painting from the lower left edge, framing the central black form's lower left edge. All the above-described forms are outlined with thick white paint to set them apart from the primarily black background.
