This picture is the second abstract picture in the Construction series, where the figure has been left out to direct focus towards the pattern, surface and grids. The negative space enhances the tension between the two shapes, and the diagonal directions are throwing the composition slightly off balance, creating a sense of distress and uncertainty. The number “2” is the number of partnership, stability and duality but also of two opposites, such as male and female, positive and negative, dark and light.
