In this pciture, it is the obvious contrast of light and dark. However, as usual there is a hidden meaning. If you look at this picture and cover one half of it (one of the woman) you will see the picture is no longer balanced. it seems unfinished right? It is the same in both directions. Well this is a depiction of good and evil. Without one the other isnt complete. it just doesnt work. Think about it. Construction Notes: Origial picture was done in ink, but I wanted to do a larger peice (some 16" x 20") so I started with the black figure which I painted on white construction paper. I then traced it and flipped it over, cutting it out on white construction paper to past over the black construction paper on the other side. Framed with white and black presssboard wich was done in two peices.
