This work is interesting compositionally only for its distinction from other negative space-focused works. For once, this work uses colors on a black background to paint its subject, and it gets the colors exactly right at that. The emptiness of the black background emphasizes how the dirt in which these sprouts are embedded is not important to the image, and the fade away into a consistent, yellowish dirt color towards the edges of the work gives more reassurance that it is indeed meant to represent dirt.
