About this artwork

Artist John Diehl creates a sharp diagonal division that cleaves the subject into two distinctive halves. The upper portion features a solid white trapezoid, while the lower part is a hollow red triangle sharply outlined in white. Against a crimson backdrop, the simple elements in this composition offer a striking visual contrast and provide the viewer with a point of contemplation. While its elegance is apparent from a distance, a closer inspection reveals subtle pencil lines and intimate traces of the human touch. These are my marks as a human being entering the Posthuman Era, says John. This is a composition with a bold statement about the persisting significance of human agency and creativity in a world of technological innovations.
