Work Description: 
Emerging from the left side of the canvas is a large yellow form with jagged edges. A gray form borders the yellow form's top edge, though the transition is interrupted with several small areas of white. A large black form encroaches upon the yellow form from the right. White and vibrant blue bursts of color shoot through the black form from the upper right corner of the composition, while two vertical forms–one gray and one orange–emerge from right edge of the canvas.
