Into Chaos

This print is essentially three squared sections within one another. The outermost section is made up of a fine blue and red checkerboard pattern, drawing into the middle section which has the same pattern enlarged four times. At the center is a solid red square, many times larger than those around it, that offers a quietness in the center of the dizzying commotion. Color theory and Optical Illusion Art psychology account for this effect and give substance to the work's title, "Into Chaos".
