The title Every Dark Cloud Has A Silver Lining instinctively makes the viewer curious, where the two contrasts within the piece give a different meaning to their original thoughts. The piece depicts the perfect social media appearance that the black and white family give off despite their being troubles in the background. Showing off their power and class through the attire, they appear almost oblivious to the explosion of which they have their backs turned against. With only the background in solid gold and no pattern, Gjoen creates a collage of cut-outs which allow for the focus to be on the figures.
