This work is effective in communicating its subject's personality by way of textural contrast. The subject in this case, of course, is the figure in black occupying the left side of the image. The very left edge is composed of a solid, vaguely grainy violet that fades into black, whereas the middle of the image sees thin drips of red hanging down from the figure. And for contrast, the right side of the image, behind the hill that occupies the center is an orderly, vibrant background, about to be invaded.
