Artist's description:

Beginnings is a metaphysical painting. On the external sides of the canvas, two grotesque profiles are competing for the blue drop placed at the centre. A reptilian tongue tries to reach the elemental azure and underlines cruel monsters’ features.
The main subject is sustained by an old hand, personification of Mother Nature. The background is textured with white lines made of plaster, which separate real and unreal. Every part of the painting creates balance with others.
Taboo is the overstated use of water and the inhuman waste of resources. This waste is the beginnings of every current social issue, because water is the only source of life for living being.
The conflict for the water is symbolized through humanoid monsters: they represent industry and money. There are no actions to prevent the dramatic loss of water resources: mass media sometimes talk about this problem but it doesn’t seem to be as serious as it actually is.
Every part of the artwork is characterized by an evil behavior and the water drop becomes weak: its fate is predestinated and it is represented by the tear falling down from a tired eyelid.
