Ananda Kesler's painting 'When Yin Meets Yang For the First Time' is an excellent example of her work, demonstrating her mastery of abstraction. Int he composition, gradient fields of gray create a tonalist atmosphere. Out of the haze, two spheres emerge, one white and one black for Yin and Yang. While on one hand the painting is clearly harkening to east Asian ideas of balance and harmony in the universe, the composition and handling of forms also recalls the work of Abstract Expressionist painters like Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko. Like these artists, Kesler explores the ways in which purely abstract imagery can represent abstract concepts.
