Merging many elements of the Field Series and the Vibration Series, this work was created in tandem with many of the goals of both pursuits. The title references the willingness to embrace a more formal composition that is somewhat conventional in nature. Still, the piece does not lose any strength and dynamic purity in doing so. On the contrary, it goes against intuition by pushing the three-dimensional elements away from the viewer and putting the emphasis on the illusion that carries the weight of the painting. The result is an engaging new look at our notions of creation, evolving form, and the leading of the eye in this kind of perceived medium.
