In this large acrylic on canvas painting, artist Rosanna Saccoccio used a technique of extruding paint from a container to draw directly onto a predetermined area of the composition to create a design, in this case the cross symbol within the diamond shape and the X form. In addition, the extruded paint provided textural variation to the surface of the work. This artwork is installed at the Mass Transit Administration Building.

"This is a work of a non-objective statement in high intensity of colors influenced by African and American Indian art."
