This is an excellent study in contrasts and symbology, of subtlely balancing chaos and tranquility, ID and Ego, maleness and femaleness, life and death.  The neutrality of the beige tones representing simplicity, calmness, steadfastness.  The stark contrast of the red shows vivid passion, fire, energy, frenzy.  Often we are truly blinded by our passions and we lose our way and struggle to return to our core and be the truth that we seek.  The journey is always treacherous but locked inside of us is what's needed to have the ability to find our way... and be the guide for others to do so.  I found much symbolism, mythos in this image.  As my penchant is writing short stories, I thought this image could easily represent such a theme.  It is powerful on many levels.  I found MANY ways to interpret this.   For me, that is the sign of a truly great piece of art. Thank you :-)

I agree with everything you said. It also uses "dream colour" symbology. Although we don't register it, most aspects of our dreams are in black and white. (If you are thinking, "hang on, I always dream in colour", you may find this hard to believe. If so, do you see the waking world in colour? Of course, right? Wrong. We see most of it in colour. Images at the periphery of our vision have little colour saturation. We know their colour partly because we can move our heads and hence allow the cones of our eyes to recognise the colour and also because we know what colours to expect. When you wake from a dream, your mind colours it into "awake" colours, autonomously.)
Dream colour is something different. When you find yourself vividly aware of a colour in a dream, there is symbology about it. It is important. If this were a dream, there are only two relevant "dream colours" everyone has complimented the red, but while my fellow Celt explained the "real world" meaning of the beige and red tones, the streak of white in the brightness of the red sky has more relevance in dream language. In Dream colours, red is the colour of femininity. White is the colour of masculinity (there is more than just that but it is not relevant if this picture is viewed as a dreamscape) When red and white combine, it is translated as the male and female combining, a sexual act. Then the actual image itself discerns the relevance of that act. In this picture, that is ambiguous. The red blindfold would symbolise that she hasn't "seen" women's ways; she is a virgin. The sexual act the sky suggests, would then breaking away the blindfold. That she is close to the precipice suggests to me a loving breakage, the protection of a partner who has guarded her innocence, only breaking it when failure to do so would lead to her falling, to losing her. (Note the other two women's postures. Unblindfolded, they are standing confidently)
But then, that's only dream language, and my interpretation of the dream. There are many other ways of interpreting art and this, like the best of it's genre, can be interpreted differently by every viewer.

WOW!!! Beautiful composition, and I love the bright red blind fold. It contrasts the woman so well.
