I actually made this piece while I had strep throat and was about to start a very intense fever that I was not yet made aware of. Throat pain was ravaging and I thought why not paint. So there are definitely subconscious attempts at depicting pain in this piece. With the lightning bolt looking lines. The black and blue colors really give the feeling of depth in general. I was in a lot of physical pain while making this piece and I feel it came through. This time around I gave the squares a look of receding rather than neutral or coming forward. This was actually a mistake. I added the white on one square and when I looked back at it I realized it looked like it was going into the canvas. I liked that look a lot and kept it.
