The appreciation of the overall composition subsequently gives way to the perception of existing narratives: the soundless intensity of a couple’s conversation and solitary characters in a minimal landscape, looking straight into the void or staring at us as lost heroes. Occasional grids of single elements, such as skulls serially repeated on the painting, also produce a jamming effect of abstract and figurative elements.
