About the work

Two entirely different hues of reddish progressive expansions (at the upper and lower end) were used as an attempt to generate a kind of contrast within a context of similarity. In addition, chromatic scales were densely structured to produce a gradation of light and color that moves toward a horizontal line of vanishing points, suggesting an inward motion.
