“Black and White in Winter” 

is a minimalist portrayal of the season.  The black reflects the long dark nights and white – the snow.  Artistic portrayal of the season is in its most basic form.  Black has many attributes, and in this context, reflects loneliness, quietness, mysteriousness but also intimidation.  The absence of light prevents us from seeing things – and the inability to see things makes us nervous.  At its most extreme it reflects death.  On the other hand black is a color of authority and power    Night is the end of the day but as soon as light appears an awakening of a new day starts.  White also has many characteristics and is the confluence of all color, resulting in no color at all.   At its best it signifies purity.  On a cold winter morning after a snowfall there is a silence as if all in the world is asleep.  

Black and white are opposite in many ways but need each other.
