This is very profound. I think the glaring colours but blurred edges of the shapes are alluding to the intensity of human desire in all its immediacy, but such emotion is never clear-cut. The red symbolises passion, and the black shows how desire is one and the same with emptiness and despair through longing. In this piece, desire is likened to fire and so is portrayed as a destructive albeit complex and thoroughly human emotion. Ig, this is an absolutely breathtaking piece which really makes you stop and think about humanity.
