In this abstract figurative painting by Hungarian artist János Huszti, a figure defined by negative space, looks through either a camera or pair of binoculars upon what might be a distant sea-side pier partially hidden by fog.

According to the painter, a blank canvas was painted in three or four colors, and then pressed against a second canvas, allowing the two canvases to slip against the other, creating a textured background. Finally, the canvas was painted with white to create negative space.
