This work experiments with color, patterns, and abstract design. It posits order out of disarray, strict spatial organization  disrupted by a cacophonous flurry of movements and noise. This work is inspired by a small collective of painters, Les Fauves, who led an art movement that explored the use of bold colors in ways that did not represent the natural coloring of the subject.
