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.
