Links - Art


In Links, the nature of connections is examined in a minimalist, freeform image. The links depicted in this painting are not drawn as neatly interlocking rows of rings, but rather as loose, approximate connections with gaps and absences, as well as points of stronger or weaker connection. This interesting configuration represents the fluid and ever-changing nature of human interpersonal connections. Relationships are born, metamorphose, and die in relative short periods of time.

This painting has an extremely minimalist feel, distinctive and simple black lines set against a stark, white background. Yet little is needed to give this painting profound meaning, and the painting’s economy only serves to highly the importance of these human relationships, which are crucial elements in an otherwise bare, cold, and unfriendly universe.
