CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
4 segments joined to form an abstract grayscale image with geometric and overlapping shapes. Narrow lines of black and white run at angles across the segments, intersecting one another. They are highly contrasted against the background, in which ink wash is used to make a gradient of tones that diverge from lines that run diagonally across each section.
