An oil painting on canvas, this is an abstract painting predominantly using black and white oil paints. The background appears to be white paint with a black box on the upper half. The two colors are connected by a long black brushstroke down the middle. The brushstroke does not touch the edges of the canvas but instead takes up 2/3 of the canvas length-wise and 1/3 width-wise.
