Chaos and order. Movement and tranquility. Light and dark. Warmth and cold. Life and death. Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman. Contrasts, opposites, polarities. Mutually exclusive, yet mutually conditional. One can only be experienced through the existence of the other. Warmth can only be perceived as such because one has knowledge of the cold. One becomes aware of life only by possessing knowledge of its opposite, death.
