This abstract painting represents a central twisting form in shades of light blue and white. At the top of the composition a rectangle tips to the right of the canvas, below it two rectangles protrude to the left and right, and below those forms a series of less regular white shapes occupy the center of the canvas. The white form is surrounded by shades of blue and red paint. On the left side of the form is almost entirely shades of light blue, with some red in the lower left quadrant of the painting. On the right side the lower corner is primarily blue with a few strokes of red, while the upper corner is almost entirely red.
