This poignant artwork is an artistic expression of human action and real consequences. In the foreground we see an action – two lovers holding hands and committing suicide by taking cyanide. In the background you can see the consequences – the police and their bodies. The chosen theme touches on the topic of mental problems and the consequences of not getting adequate help. Strong work is characterized above all by dynamism. The viewer is witness to an extremely sad scene, which both happens and you can see its consequences. Thanks to this procedure, the work takes on an unusual, intriguing character, showing two points of view. The broad concept allows the viewer to assess the situation in many respects, which may evoke ambivalent feelings. It is not only compassion and sadness when you look at lovers, but also the powerlessness, regret and anger that emanate from the policemen. The dark colors chosen by the artist masterfully emphasize the seriousness of the situation.
