"My son can finger paint better than that."
With a black background, Miro painted with a basic color palette of red, yellow, blue and highlights of white several geometric shapes (stars, triangles, circles) which composed into a few organic shapes (sun or flower, fish). There is no clear focal point. At first glance, it may look like something a four year old has drawn, but there is certainly more to the image than what the surface entails. The use of color clearly defines both positive and negative influences, especially in how they are arranged on the canvas. The red and blue flip-flop top and bottom across the page, and the white line seems to ebb and flow between them. The triangles are interesting because unlike the rest of the shapes, they are haphazardly painted, rough even. On close inspection, the individual hairs from the brushstroke can be seen. Entitled, "Self Portrait II," it is an interesting composition for a self portraiture, as there are no obvious human features. The image is purely symbolic and abstract.
