This piece has more going on than is apparent at first glance.
The central core, appearing somewhat like a fractured and discombobulated shield, with a warped hole in the center, is surrounded by a 'broken' frame in each of the four corners. The two are separate three dimensional objects, and if 'un-distorted' and 'reassembled' the frame would be one piece, and the central object another.
The intricate reflections that play across the metallic-like surfaces are interesting and pleasing and hint at unseen objects.
The blue background is also far more intricate than realized at a casual glance. Examination of the center reveals a small starburst of radiant color. An intricate web is woven through the background as if representing a warped space-time continuum, or a complicated graphic plot. The blue is deeper and more intense in the center, and fades into the farther corners.
All together, as the eye wanders across the complex yet simple surfaces, it senses an order out of the chaos, and despite the fractured appearance, the perusal becomes a relaxing interlude.

Creating art is - for me - a true give and take between what I attempt to do and what the evolving piece makes me do. Often, when I try to push the art in one direction, it responds differently and makes me take it in another. The art itself surprises me, and it directs me into the area it wants to be taken, rather than accepting what I try to make it do. And so I let myself go and the art takes over and the evolution excites, surprises and amazes me. I love it!
