NOTES
With its bold colors and clearly defined shapes, this work is a vibrant example of hard-edged geometric abstraction. Multiple layers create a rough texture, so that the predominant blues give the impression of a swirling vortex. Dynamic angles and varying patterns keep the eye moving around the composition. The artist also made works in stained glass.
