CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A print depicting an abstraction with geometric forms and contrasting warm and cold tones. The central composition presents a symmetric arrangement of four orange circles over an orange spade shape. A light triangular shape, traced with a fine purple line and with a circle in its center, oversees the five elements. A bright yellow circle is depicted behind those elements, as a ring of light. The background presents a dark blue square covered with small dots, resembling braille, and with a slightly lighter blue border. The entire composition is surrounded by a white border.
