This painting depicts a man standing in an abstract representation of everything man has made and done. Man’s actions and consequences have created the society he sees. Consumerism, industrialization, law, order, money, drugs, poverty, government and war. When this man observes what is within the abstract ‘mirror’ he notices his contribution to society, entering an inescapable madness.
