The name of this art photograph is: 'Thin White Line'
This photograph could be categorized as an abstract constructivism art, but only at first sight. What's specific to this piece is that there are no square elements at all. Squares are the basic element of constructivism, therefore, the adjective 'abstract'. Everything we see, except for the frame - are curved lines.
What does it do for me? I love its aggressive feel, the decisiveness of the right side, while the softness and humbleness of the left one make me understand the idea of completeness. To achieve something, to get somewhere is possible but often not without both of these dimensions.
The straight cut between the two red colours is achieved by the white line. A sharp cut, a very dominant and aggressive one. To the left, we have a gentle transition from light to shade very appropriately juxtaposing the abrupt cut. These two borders define the three dominant parts of this composition - shade, red and very saturated red. The shaded elements in the top and bottom left corners are extremely important. Their size and positioning perfectly balance the white line and make this composition work.
The balance is almost everything in this photo. A little move to any side and this delicate example of how to achieve balance is gone. It is also interesting to notice that the abrupt change of colour, done by the white line is moderately softened by the line's curvature. The white line and the border of shade create an illusion of the middle part being protruded.
Did you notice a very thin red line following the bottom left element? It reminds me of the title "Thin Red Line", an excellent war movie about God. Yes, you read it right. It is an astonishing masterpiece directed by Terrence Malick in 1998. He is one of the most respected film directors in my book. Also, probably the lifetime performance of Jim Caviezel in the main role.
