The artwork SPECULAR consists of 4 intertwined portraits that reflect different states of mind, usually perceived by all human beings. It’s what makes us recognizable to others, as we can identify with the other through these emotions.
For this purpose the artist has used the three primary colors (red, yellow and blue) and a secondary color (green) for the remaining part, where red stands for shame, yellow stands for sorrow, blue stands for curiosity and green for jealousy.
