Untitled (Zugzwang) presents an ongoing series of chess player portraits within the 64-square grid that is a chessboard.

Oscillating between representation and abstraction, these portraits deal in fractured configurations with the abstract. They seem to infer psychological studies that reflect tactical and analytical thinking, thereby offering a glimpse of the appeal, as well as the overwhelming complexity and even the potential trappings, of the deceptively simple, yet unsolvable, puzzle that is chess.
