MOOP 225 a.k.a. Random Vocalizations of the Right

I decided to destroy a large horizontal format Moop; cut it into two equal vertical formats and coat them with white gesso. But the right half by itself had an engaging compositional possibility, so I kept it although making big changes, especially filling in the solid black areas. The original moop wording had been chopped in half and so now meaningless, leaving in effect "random vocalizations" of the right half. The general effect inspired my work for the next couple of years.
