One of the books i’m studying these days is a fantastic collection of book covers from the Weimar Republic featuring artwork created around the first 30 years of the 20th century. That era was followed by film noir which was inspired by some German Expressionism. This image is a sort off spin-off from that information and created spontaneously using abstract block shapes at first with no real direction. The use of black and white with various grey tones eventually blends together to become as if a still from a mysterious movie scene. A man in a window blocked from seeing another man dangerously making his way to another building using a plank to lead him to an open window. There is light in one room but no one at the window to spot this occurrence.
