A composition arranged around a central form of scattered triangles which, at the same time, subdivide the painted surface into myriad other triangular forms. At the top of the picture a minimal set of horizontal lines compose strips which hold a dense chromatic mass. A gestural explosion with an underlying rationalisation of the pictorial surface. As its title indicates, Miguel Ángel Campano painted this picture with his left hand.
