There is a conscious effort to confront the physical qualities of painting by magnifying the essential elements to such a medium. The earthy brown tones offer a daunting sense of gloom that is commended by the gloss finish to the black that sits awkwardly in an off centre position. Each individual brushstroke is visible and offers an honest portrayal to painting in such a minimal manner.
