Untitled continues Lucy McKenzie's exploration of latent meanings in design styles, expanding a detail from an advertising image she found on a condom vending machine of two robots amorously engaged. The scene is rendered in a Mondrian-esque style using geometric blocks and is rendered in faux marble to make the "ugly" scene appear more elegant. The work also includes two figures in shadow, as if in conversation while looking at the painting. McKenzie's ICA exhibition Momentum 2 in 2004 was her first one-person museum exhibition in the United States.

Untitled is a study for the wall drawing Lucy McKenzie created for Momentum 2 at the ICA. The mural exemplifies McKenzie's borrowing from varied styles, in this case the formal language of classical architecture, with its columns, arches, and symmetry.
