This work is vibrant and active, using the contrast between background horizontal lines and foreground vertical lines, combined with more negative space, to give an impression of layers and depth. All the while, the contours and the motion of the subject of the work, also embodied by the negative space and the cracks running through it, are expressed in form. The particular direction in which the subject moves - towards the top-left of the image - goes together with the horizontal and vertical lines behind it, to emphasize that motion.
