About The Artwork: 

Introducing "Sustained Sense," a surreal black-and-white illustration featuring two abstract fish and an octagon filled with an eye for added depth.

Fish are often seen as symbols of the unconscious or the unknown, illustrating the depths of the psyche or the hidden aspects of ourselves. The two fish in the illustration could represent duality or opposites. The fact that there are two fish could suggest a tension between different parts of the self or conflicting desires. Alternatively, the fish could represent the balance between opposing forces or the need to integrate various aspects of ourselves.

The octagon filled with an eyeball is a powerful symbol of seeing or perception. The eye is often seen as a symbol of consciousness or awareness, representing the ability to see things clearly or gain insight. The octagon shape is also significant, often associated with stability and balance. The fact that the eye is contained within the octagon could suggest a need for balance or equilibrium in our perception or way of seeing things.

Putting these symbols together, we can see the illustration as a representation of the need to balance opposing forces and to gain clarity or insight. The image invites us to explore the tensions and conflicts within ourselves and to seek a balanced and clear perception of the world around us. It suggests that by embracing the different parts of ourselves and gaining insight into our psyche, we can achieve a greater sense of harmony and balance in our lives.

"The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery." — Anais Nin
