The first painting represents the degradation of art to please the masses. It is painted on top of another picture of a landscape as to represent the rejection of the classics. What is presented is a brain that is upside-down; a brain in disorder through which an eye-baring flower sprouts and looks back at the perceiver for what art has been reduced to. That is an incoherent image which reflects reality more realistically. The eye-bearing flower is inspired by Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal.

The second painting represents the position of an artist, a writer or any individual that wants to bring about change in society. Taking up the role of the pawn, the artist has to overcome the pain and suffering which plagues society and refuse to be consumed by conformist ideas as to achieve a certain kind of resolution that could salvage any discarded pieces of innocence in humanity.
