Jon Kraja's cycle of  paintings entitled "This is the end" is a set of illusory two-dimensional images that move, intertwine and shape an "other" world, reflecting an "other" life, where anyone can navigate its anxiety or joy through  the eyes. One of the statements by Jean Helion, the French abstract painter, that "... I understand abstract art as an attempt to feed the imagination with a world built through the senses of the eye" is completely true for every abstract artist, including Jon Kraja with "This is the end". In these paintings, Joni Kraja travels through the eyes' sensation. He previously senses daily reflections, which are often inherited from the past. In an instant, full of creativity and utterly overwhelmed by the effect of the expressive-abstract act, he manages to stop and boldly paint an endless ending. Although he titles the cycle of subliminal torment "This is the end" he clearly reflects his experience of a single segment of time in his creativity and not its completion.

The analysis of the phrase "This is the end", in the broad sense, is the closed circuit of human life experiences. It is the fatal expression that demands the end, as well as the optimistic expression of a new beginning. At this hotspot, Joni Kraja's massive picture , through a wonderful color palette pushes us towards a positive end, to discover  a new beginning. I would never feel "This is the end" as a fallen pessimism of the artist or mine, of somebody or the universe, because the artist has interpreted the image creating the illusion and this shows that his mind is fertile and strong. Because I feel active and transformative seeing the image as an illusion of ideas. For the universe will come to an end, when it has transformed the human being into a new being, that is, into a new illusion.
