The most powerful element in “In the depths of my mind” is the small amount of non-colors, by which Dominic Brown managed nonetheless to make an intriguing piece of art. Just because that lack of color, this piece focuses on the shapes. Sharp-edged shapes that circle around the more detailed and softer shapes in the center. The observer will be able to look at the painting for a long time and still see new things. Another brilliant element is the three dimensionality in the center, and the very subtle hint of red - that is creating a phallus like shape in this altogether masculine painting.
