Inner Hurricane - Art
In Inner Hurricane, a swirling image in a monochromatic color scheme invokes all the danger and intensity of a hurricane. One of the most dangerous weather phenomena on the planet, an impending hurricane is a source of human anxiety in many regions of the world. A powerful, swirling wind that brings heavy rain and destruction, this force of nature can be seen as a metaphor for equally powerful and destructive forces in the human mind. Just as weather conditions bring about a dangerous storm, so can emotional conditions create the potential for a dangerous and intense storm inside a person’s mind.
The swirling image portrayed in this piece evokes a movement and energy that is intense and captivating. The darkness of the broad strokes in this piece creates a sense of menace and anxiety, and the coiling configuration of the lines suggests a roiling mass of moving force. The internal struggle depicted in this piece is violent and powerful, indicating a basic internal struggle between opposing forces. Inner Hurricane provides an image of the difficulty and strain that is the result of internal strife.
