In this work, bright contrasting colours of acrylic paint are thickly applied on board. The painting has an energetic, abstract design with jagged red lines cascading erratically down the length of its slim, vertical format.

The artist has employed vigorous, expressive brushwork to produce a web of painted lines interspersed with patches of bright, almost neon, colour. The overall effect is busy, vibrant and intriguing, posing questions in the viewer's mind: is there a figure dimly drawn?; does the title allude to a physical or emotional bridge?
