This is a painting about a dystopian future, a depiction of a doomed relationship. Two robots, chromium giants tower over a desert landscape. One alive, one dead, both emotionless.
In the rocks on the left in brighter colours we see an embracing but now human couple in outdated clothing. The rocks are topped with a vigorous red rose and two Victorian explorers, time travellers that witness the distant scene.
This is the past, or perhaps the present as the greyness to the right (the grey sky is raining) shows the unrequited future. The destroyed city shows disaster there and the pale rose, contrasting with the scarlet one, sags its head. Love is dead.
