These two pieces followed a specific narrative; at the centre of both is a portal to the void of the afterlife, which shows up like the Grim Reaper. It's in place of the sun location-wise and visually it's a star with inverted colour. In the sense of opposites then, it makes sense that it looks kind of like a black hole. The landscape-oriented one is meant to be the equivalent of a sunset, a voidset if you will, with half of the portal below the horizon line of a body of red water. In practice, when I look at it all I can see is the red area looking like the floor and the portal looking like a cave in a wall. I love the way the rocks meet the water though. The portrait-oriented one better communicates the narrative, with two figures on a hill looking into the void and aware of what it means.
