'Surrounded By Stone'
Two plants are thriving surrounded by the unhospitable stone. There seems to be nothing that sustains life. Yet, here they are, like two people walking alone in the desert. If it was only a single plant, it would appear sad, wouldn't it? With the two of them, it appears adventurous to an extent but even that cannot strip away the fact that they barely ever feel the sunlight on their leaves. When people find themselves in this situation, they walk away, move, go someplace else. Plants, they cannot. They need to accept the fact and continue their life. Is it a lesson to be learned?
The strong green colour accent of the leaves, in otherwise greyish, quite colourless composition, leaves an impact on the observer. However, notice the 'inner' part of the image containing a slight overlay of blue and green that goes well with the yellowish 'outside'. We can find a similar observation regarding the tonality. On the outside, we have a small pointed patch of sunlight, opposed to the larger inner shade. That patch tells us how far away it is from the plants.
Most of the composition is consisting of shapes, there are not many lines except for the side walls, the plants and edges. All of the stone and concrete areas have sharp cut edges, while the plant is organic, soft and tender. This signifies the strength of life. It can thrive in places where we'd reckon impossible.
So can a human! ;)
