Untitled, 1959
On the first look, the person looks calm, easy going, even plain. He seems joyless, removed and cold. Then you start getting to know the person. You dig a little bit deeper, and you see that he's  got  dark side. It is full of feelings, internal motion and passions. And all of those are a lot more powerful, concentrated and even fearful, because they are concealed and don't have an outlet.
