"Trichotomy" is a trio of figure drawings in the subtractive colors cyan, magenta, and yellow. The fluid shapes that comprise each person's form aim to portray the dynamic nature of each individual — even as their poses remain relatively static — while drawing attention to the composition as a whole through a limited color palette.
