Justice - Art
In Justice, distorted circular shapes line up to create a pattern in a beautiful, pastel-colored piece that illustrates the nature of human justice. The pastel colors used in this piece create an idyllic mood for the painting. Justice is a lofty concept, and it is one that has been a part of mankind’s philosophy for centuries. The distribution of fairness is a difficult challenge, yet humanity’s desire to do so is noble, marking one of our greatest characteristics.
Yet the distorted shape of the circles portrayed in this piece reveal that humanity often fails in this idealistic pursuit. The circles are not perfect, rather they are misshapen, as though formed by an imperfect hand. In the same way, justice is imperfect, often malformed because of its necessary distribution by flawed human minds. Yet the pursuit remains admirable, just as the painting is beautiful, despite its irregular composition.
