The painting portrays an artist in his studio, where love and romance is in the air and fantasy and reality are intertwined. It is in his studio that Mr. Suroso explores his idealism and the concept of beauty in both its modern and traditional form. The man in the painting with a cloth covering the face depicts the artist himself. Faced with paradoxical ideals and concepts, the artist finds himself locked up in isolation.
