"Be Still #112" features a single dragonfly centrally positioned against a background that is to be a grid map-like pattern with a translucent quality to it. The remarkable detail of the dragonfly's wings is prominently displayed, showcasing the intricate venation and delicate structure. The grid adds a contrasting, geometric and man-made element to the organic form of the insect. The edges of the piece are framed by a material with an uneven texture, and there is a small green leaf object on the lower left corner, adding a touch of color and another element of nature to the composition. The interplay between the natural elements and the structured background gives the piece a contemplative quality, invoking thoughts on the relationship between the organic and the constructed.
