A few people asked why I've titled this piece "Duality".
When looking at the guitar we see its physical representation as an instrument, but the music it makes is something we cannot see, the music it makes is the guitar's soul. Just like when looking at a human being we see the face and but the spirit is something that cannot be touched or seen.
This duality of existence is what inspired me for this painting - and the second guitar hiding behind the first is to remind of that elusive presence without which the existence of the material is meaningless.
