Karmakars and Descartes` Therefore

Do we have any right to use the word logic here? Here, in front of Karmakars images?Karmakar labels his paintings with the title “I am loving, therefore I am being”

The word “therefore” challenges. Juxtaposing his paintings with this word, Karmakars dark twilightening images provocate even more. They challenge the power and tradition of western reasoning. The provocate those who base their scientific arguments on the reasoning of Descartes.

Descartes- philosopher and one of the most distinguished mathematician of history -wrote in his Discourse on method: I am thinking, therefore I am being.
