Images of Mark Grotjahn, Untitled (S II Some of us didn't know we were Indian, Painting for RH, Face 41.72)

A complex, frantic artwork shows dozens of lines of color in shades of pink, red, and yellow meeting roughly in an "X" shape against a black background. The lines seem hastily rendered in what appears to be oil pastel.
