The threaded lines suggest a physical barrier that interrupts the shapes and stops them from connecting and at the same time a transparency is created that allows the viewer to enter through the lines onto the painted surface.

The titles of each series can be interpreted as emotional, psychological and physical conditions.

This piece from the series Bulge is a rhythmic vertical threaded pattern across a mononchromatic painted surface.

The ebb and flow of the motif recalls the feminine figure and hence the title.
