This painting uses the dichotomy of complimentary colors to capture the reaction of displeasure. The monochromatic tones in the portrait are used to bring a sense of calming in contrast to the vibrant reds. Which in turn was an attempt to please the eyes in an attempt to create an emotional irony.

Judge's Comment: "Striking, stylized portrait features a distinct expression of mood with a powerful, yet very original portrayal. Mesmerizing: makes us keep looking—and looking. The figure seems to speak to us almost telepathically, leading the viewer to an unsettling sense of intrigue."
