Delicate and almost imperceptible drypoint lines in silvery gray animate the tangible, even plane of the black background. Curves and loops connect and relate forms made of brilliant orange and red stripes, as well as blue and purple smaller shapes that appear around the edges. Small red dots mark the convergence points of interwoven visual melodies as they float against a background reminiscent of an Italian fresco with warm washes of luminous tans and grays.
