Creating an arrangement of only 4 events is one of the most difficult compositional challenges since the relationship between them is so crucial. I'm especially fond of this one because of the dynamic color and pattern variety.
I often give pieces unofficial nicknames if they pop into my mind as I view them. In this case, "SCI-FI" seemed appropriate. It evokes something fantastic yet succinct - supernovas, moons, exploration - a universe in a small package.
Every season I try to keep a piece for myself that I especially enjoy because it sums up the innovations of the season and inspires future possibilities.
This is the "Keeper" of 2012.
