The Century of Dolphins 's blue-green background adds to its vibrancy. In the same instant, the quick and irregular layered brushstrokes of red, yellow, brown, and black, which fuse with the bluish background, create the impression of disharmony.
Concerning the color work of the subject matter, primarily the shades of warm red, some orange, yellow, black along with the neutral blue-green, prevail. We may observe the artist builds up layers of painting, in order to denser the hues. It gives a feel of dimensionality of separation while existing in harmony.
The abstract painting is asymmetric, since the largest part of it is closer to the left. Likewise, the two significant focal points, which are the garnet head of a dolphin and the gray profile of a person’s face, are located on the left side of the image.
The third focal point is represented by an orange boat on the right from the dolphin’s head. Besides, the abstract art work contains the images of a couple of other sea inhabitants, among which is an octopus. In addition, there is a head of an albatross, which is a common seabird.
However, noted by the artist is the sound of dolphins and whales in their thalassic habitat, and accordingly the abstract painting composition with its rhythmic drawing gives the viewer visual music. We have a glorification of the immanent beauty of the animal in its domicile.
