N.Y. City, 1945

Tall rectangular canvas divided into a very detailed (seemingly random) grid of rectangular shapes. The grid plays tricks on your eyes making you see two sets of distinctively separate sets of shapes, one set of rectangles is all grey and the other is a pattern of white black and bright colors. The grey rectangles are taller than the the other set which are small and wider in shape. The overall feeling (based on the title of the work) could be to see the taller rectangles as buildings and the other shapes as energy or even people flowing around the buildings.
