In this painting, an all-over helix pattern interacts with a sharp-angled vortex that fills the canvas. This composition features a gradated ground that begins with deep purple at the top and fades into shades of magenta. This work is a continuation of the artist's ongoing use of calligraphic, letter-like forms and their interactions with a range of abstract shapes, including: biomorphs, lattices, circles and sine waves.

Lin’s dense calligraphy is a kind of graffiti in which comprehensible lettering gives way to pure form. This script evokes patterns and structures found in nature, on both the macro and micro level. Lin's abstractions bring to mind single-cell organisms, entangling kudzu vines and other plants, DNA helices and pulsating constellations—all rendered in effervescent colors. While Lin’s practice is distinctly his own, his work nonetheless resonates with the history of 20th century abstraction—including artists such as Joan Miró, Wassily Kandinsky, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb and Bradley Walker Tomlin.
