I call this piece “Decem,” the Latin word for the numeral ten. I originally envisioned it as a series of slanted lines against an irregular, organic background. But then my symmetry-loving self thought, “This is only the top half of the piece. It wants to be an “X,” not an “M.” And so I kept on going.
For me, “Decem” brings to mind a mosaic tile design that one might have seen on a wall in ancient Rome. It also reminds me of looking out (or up) through a stylized window.
