Oozing out of the square

A square is a shape I often use in my works. I associate words such as clean, minimal, logical, efficient, and organized. It can also indicate a type of framework. If you take multiple squares and line them up, one next to the other on all sides, you can create a grid. Squares and grids exist to provide me with structure and guidance. However, I find it most satisfying to see when colors run to the edges and then slowly start oozing outside the boundary. I am reminded of a statement I once read; the best part of life is the uncontrollable rather than the controllable.
