Rage - Art
In Rage, a dense, dark cluster of lines is the central focus, swirling around a central point. This central point is the source of the rage mentioned in the title, and the emotions surrounding this source of rage are represented by the dark, dense lines that encircle the center of the painting. The lines are closely spaced, revolving closely around a central locus, as though held in orbit by a strong gravitational force. The force of gravity pulling on the figure is directly related to the amount of rage present in the center of the image.
The black color of this swirling mass of lines is another indication of the nature of rage. A color typically associated with evil and anger, the deep black of this image reflects the evil and supreme negative power of rage. The dense, swirling mass of blackness shows the dark power of rage, and the painting Rage is quite emotionally compelling.
