This work experiments with color, patterns, and abstract design. It posits order out of disarray by the use of strict spatial organization, which is disrupted by a cacophonous flurry of movements and noise. This work is inspired by a small collective of painters who were come to be known as Les Fauves, and the ideas and curiosities they possessed about abstract representation with color.
