Kiss by Akili Ron Anderson combines abstract geometric patterning and abstracted figurative representation. The lower half of the composition presents two faces shown in profile, facing one another. Between them is a diamond shape containing two lips placed close, nearly kissing. In the upper half of the image, an eight-pointed rose-window-like element floats above a cradling, broadened u-shape.
