Explosion of subconsciousness

"When I painted this work I experienced a light and a dark side of myself.

First there was a feeling of love. From the ink blot a female Buddhist figure appeared with a chicken in her lap. When the figure was almost finished I applied ink to this figure because I was not satisfied with the result.  It was too obvious. The urge for destruction came to my mind. The corona situation has some disadvantages....I stopped painting for three weeks.

Then I turned the canvas upside down and different shapes appeared while working with oil.

Have I unconsciously made a self-portrait?"
