This work combines a multitude of elements in an effective way. The pitch-black background of the image already sets the tone of darkness, highlighting the bright focus of the figure in the top left. It expands out, reaching directly across the image, burrowing into the white foreground with jagged violet residue surrounding each such breach. The light smudges around the figure help give the impression that some power is at work that can't fully be comprehended, and that impression is assisted by the smears in the lower-left corner of the image. Overall, despite being somewhat abstract, this is a surprisingly cohesive work.
