I chose this work because it initially seems like a simple execution, but it is a woodcut, and the whole thing is lined up perfectly and symmetrical. The colors are also very nice. There doesnt seem to be any distinct pattern or specific color choice except that they are all bright. The black edge around it make it look complete, emphasizing a square among circles.
