Confused Much - Art


Confused Much is a cleverly titled piece that invokes the nature of the human mind and its thought processes. The confusion alluded to in the title is depicted by a circular, swirling image that is the focus of this piece. The circular shape of this image suggests the circular patterns that human thought often assumes. Thought patterns in the human mind rarely progress in a purely linear fashion. Rather, thoughts more often loop back to previous ideas, referencing and drawing connections in a circular pattern.

The green color of the circular thoughts acts as a judgment upon the nature of this confusion. Green is a color typically associated with nature and all natural things. Therefore, the green color scheme of this painting suggests that this confused state of affairs is indeed a normal, everyday feature of human life. The human mind is a fascinating, often confusing phenomenon, yet this confusion is not a cause for concern, but rather a natural reality of life.
