A bright light shines through these orange slices from behind, making them appear to glow from the inside. The vibrant reverberating color stands out sharply against the deep black space and stuns with its intensity. Orange light plays in swirls along the sides of the tiny round glass. A reflection of the artist at work is visible on the silver rim. The painting is filled with the mesmerizing presence of light.
