In the painting, we see what appears to be an outline of a mountain landscape fit into a larger picture. From the side of the “proper” image, forms of various shapes – round, flowing, cutting sharply across – are pressing against it.  These elements define the piece’s dynamics, while playing a game with the viewer’s aesthetic habits. Formally, Untitled does not differ fundamentally from the artist's other paintings. Yet, as Borowski says, it has been significantly more popular. What is the source of its allure and magnetism? The painter claims that the piece works like a visualisation of evil, imperceptibly fascinating and attractive – hence the work's subtitle.
