This painting is an abstract interpretation of the event in 2013 known as Typhoon Haiyan. The forms have direct symbolic meanings (something I don't ordinarily do in an abstract painting) as the storm progressed over the Philippines almost four years ago. Painting is gallery wrapped with the sides unpainted.
