   Reflections from the different surfaces create a pattern which provides the  opportunity to develop a composition of energetic balance and structure in an  arrangement of interlocking colours and shapes. The  reflections from both horizontal and  vertical planes combine and contrast with each other within the restricted pictorial space. This space is flattened, through the cropping of the objects depicted, and creates a tension between pictorial surface and illusionistic depth.
