The impossible staircases lead up to a platform. The black underground suggest a space atmosphere. Therefor you could say the stairs try to reach the stars.
After experimentation with the concept of the impossible triangle in Crystal Blue I wanted to experiment a bit. I Decided to make a staircase and attach all the side parts of the stairs on a vertical post. Then I decided to draw the other staircase. I wasn't sure what to do next. I first wanted to have more staircases. Instead of that, I decided that a platform would be nicer Preferable with a kind of window to overlook what's in the background. A stairway to heaven that's what I had in my mind.
After painting Crystal Blue I wanted to use the same colors again as the fitted well together. I only added black as I thought it would make the painting stronger. Especially because the idea was to make it a stairway to heaven, a stairway that would reach to the stars. A black background would fit this purpose perfectly. However, since I came back from Greece I overthought the name. Heaven doesn't fit the painting so well. It's more a staircase that reaches a platform that overlooks outer space, the stars and planets. I choose the name to be Starcase.
