This work uses the gallery's ripple wave archetype in a very interesting way, by restricting it to just two colors and blocking out the center of the image to give less of a sense of where the waves emanate from, or which direction they travel. The shading style and texture also help to make this work memorable and unique.
A fairly early work, Warp is one of the gallery's first instances of this sort of rough texture, and this texture still remains a rarity. A very abstract work, yet one with a definite measure of feeling behind it.
This work is angular and blocky in an interesting way, and contains a diverse palette of different colors that don't quite mesh but yet do not disrupt each other. It's almost like a broken machine that, yet, still works through force of careful foresight and good construction. This work is also the predecessor of a few later works that explore the "room" theme further, most notably Mystery Room and Maze Room.
This work is overtly positive, mainly through its choice of palette. And yet, it remains somber, also partly through its choice of palette, as well as in structure as the negative space in the foreground seems to gaze into the distance. It also serves as a good example of a work that shines in its simplicity.
This work shines as an example of a particular shading style - Pastel Gradient, which is visible towards the top of the image as it fades from a pastel blue into a light pastel yellow. The work uses this shading, along with moire, to create a distinct impression that leads to its name.
