Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The Time of the Long Shadows... translates in a visual language a specific psychological situation or stage at which an individual may get. Of course it is difficult and risky to explain all as it is difficult to explain a dream in full. A dream always has many levels and this is what I like about dreams and paintings - they could convey many messages (even contradictory) simultaneously.
It seems to me in this painting we witness that moment when the a person stops and begins to look critically themselves or parts (complexes) from their personality. The structure in the background that looks like it's falling apart stands for the old personality that has reached its end point of development and now should fall down. The idiosyncratic personage in yellow (left) that looks like a chicken cared for by its mother (the figure behind/besides) it is also critically scrutinized and questioned by the skeptical guy that sits firmly on the ground to the right. The figure in the middle that should balance between left and right just looks surprised and has nothing to offer except the facts that are already known.
Yellow and violet are complementary colors that would annihilate each other if mixed and in a color equation of the painting they make it equal to zero. On the other hand the yellow is the color of intuition, the insight and the violet is the conjunction of red (emotions) and blue (thought).
