Random Thoughts - Art
In Random Thoughts, the mysterious nature of the human mind and its potential for strange, often dark, turns of emotion is depicted in a monochromatic piece giving a very dark overall impression to the viewer. The lines of the painting represent the path of the mind’s logic, trailing in a linear fashion from one topic to the next. The lines are not straight, for the human mind rarely works in a strictly straightforward way. Rather, the lines meander and cross each other, reflecting the inherent randomness and strange turns that are a part of human thinking.
Though the lines of the piece are quite interesting and move in very suggestive ways, the color scheme of the painting is very simple, allowing the shape of the image to dominate the piece. A simple charcoal color scheme allows this depiction of the mind’s process to revolve strictly around the shape and path that a random thought may travel while crossing the human mind.
