These works investigate the idea of 'kinetic suspension', a 2-Dimensional exploration into a state of flux through dynamic movements and juxtaposition of opposites such as matte v. metallic, sharp v. soft marks, dark v. light, bright v. neutral, etc. When in balance, opposites act as complements, elevating one another, and validating the other's existence.
