This is a follow-up to an earlier painting titled "STAR, VECTOR".  My original intent was to translate the spacial stillness of the earlier work into an image of more intense energy and a dissolution of form - a nova as it were.  As work progressed, though, the forms refused to dissolve, taking on, instead, altered but still definite attributes of color and shape that tugged at and defined each other as they evolved.

In the end, for me both paintings represent an instant in a chain of instants. Both might be seen equally as interactions on a micro or a macro scale.
