In this composition, brilliant red abstract shapes take the place of carefully rendered leaves and stems. Mrozowski's approach of spreading one image over several canvases is part of his work's exploration of the many assumptions inherent in visual perception. He draws the viewer's attention to the omission of minute details in otherwise lush and repetitive-patterned works.
