Limited Search - Art
In Limited Search, a monochromatic green color scheme and broad strokes create a sense of immediacy and movement. The vigorous strokes of green that comprise this abstract, freeform piece give the impression of vitality and movement. Strong curves indicate motion, and an abstract, minimalist image of a car and drive can be seen in the unusual lines of this painting. An image of motion, according to the title, this car is searching for something.
Yet the search is “limited,” or rather, it can only accomplish a certain degree of success. The green color that was chosen for this piece represents greed. Greed is a driving force and the motivation of many people’s searching. Money is a powerful force; however, there is a limit to its power to create happiness. Limited Search is a study of the nature of motivation and greed, along with its inability to completely provide for human happiness.
