Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Part of a series of paintings about change, in two parts. Part 1, the destructive, subtractive nature of change and decay, and part 2 the the gradual building back up.

Metamorphosis #1
A subtractive technique just leaves a trace of the former image on the canvas. The process is akin to washing your soul, pairing down ur life and possessions. Leaving gaps but keeping the essence. The bottom panel is glazed in blue.
