Work Description: 
Thick, grayish-blue paint has been actively applied across much of this composition. A black form surfaces from the bottom right side of the canvas, with bursts of crimson and fuchsia in its core. A vibrant yellow vertical lifeline hugs almost the entire right side of the canvas, though a small white jagged form nestles into the bottom right corner. A small vertical sliver of original canvas can be seen separating the grayish blue from the yellow in the top right of the work.
