A flurry of washed passages in a sea green and blue mixed with a shimmering metallic silver are stamped with passages of brilliant red and curved strands of fixed pastel. These fine lines in bright yellow, electric blue, turquoise and white create spatial tension and depth within the large picture plane. This painting from 1975 is an early example of Ristvedt's ability to create a poetic narrative of space, light, texture and movement through colour.
