This is one of the first paintings that I've made for my series Black and Red. The series addresses the relationship between human nature and sublime. I try to find beauty in awe and terror of nature and ephemeral quality of human existence and desires.
Symbolically, red is the color associated with passion, energy, courage, love. It demands attention and has a great emotional impact on the viewer. It is also the color of fire and blood and has various connotations depending on the culture and tradition. Whereas, black is associated with power, fear, mystery, void.
