Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

As layers were gradually removed in the process, a topographical metaphor emerged from the grid of faint red lines: As water recedes and rises new patterns appear (like an archipelago) on the surface (not unlike Smithson's Spiral Jetty). Ultimately, I have Smithson and Ellsworth Kelly influences here, but it wasn't completely intentional, although I did look at Kelly's simple shapes to research asymmetry as a way to resolve squareness. Smithson was a "residue". (Signed on the back allowing any orientation)
