Description

An isolated figure lays casually in an unlikely location. Her relaxed demeanor is paradoxical in the outdoor urban setting of concrete and steel. A thin strip of diamond-plate pattern reinforces the oblique line of her torso where it intersects the main diagonal division of the composition. The visual dichotomy between the dark upper right and the light lower left of this construction echoes the contextual dichotomy of her warm body amidst the almost lifeless surroundings.

Bleached hues hint at an acidic, dystopian industrial atmosphere. Stains and cracks punctuate the forgotten wall on which her feet are poised. A hard shadow beneath her emphasizes the curves of her body, preventing it from blending in with light tones of the foreground.
