A stacked painting that impresses a pattern on to nature, Oxygen provides a fair amount of breathing room. Its height - it pulls the eye upward-, coupled with its staggered presentation, makes space feel balanced and easily traversable. of course, space isn't either. Nor is oxygen, as essential as it is intangible and something that can't be compartmentalized. For this reason, the stylized straightforwardness with which Oxygen is spelled out here is calming, it calls attention to the intricate nature of what keeps us alive without adding to the complexity.
