A dazzling encrypted visual story, a narrative representation of the human through idiosyncratic theatricality and tightly controlled composition delivered with solidity and dynamism. The suggestive central and oversized form of the white dove contrasts chromatically with the warm brick-red background while the black and white smaller-shaped figures in the shallow field is symbolized in order to achieve his narrative reduction. The homogenous, suffocating mass of standardized people with uniform and geometric features and blank expressions is the result of the control mechanisms of this modern age of uniformity and consumption.While the pair of the enclosed central figures / “bosses” refers to the imposition and domination of power, of dictates and the imposition of orders and stereotypes.
