Creating variety with limited elements is the forte of National Artist Arturo Luz. Forms float atop the solid black background, while the various square shapes show different textures, communicating varying emotions. The evident brush strokes in blue and black imitate the arbitrary movement of the world around us. The white paint splattered imitates the stars in the sky. The solid white imitates the feeling of hushed isolation.
