Sad and conflicted

The figure is engulfed by line work, the "Weeping Nude" by Munch utilizes the visual medium to convey the idea...the darkness around the face combined with the fleshy, light areas on the arm and back counter balance the strong line created on the right hand side of the picture plane between the red and green.

The figure becomes the bridge that connects these visually opposite areas...the use of green in the figure further ties the picture plane together...all is in balance, but these visual devices embody the sorrow of the moment...we are voyeurs into a life, a sad and in conflict existence.
