About this painting
The first major work in a small group of five paintings about the coldness of conceptual art, here defined as art that is intellectual rather than emotional.

The intellect, understanding, dulls emotions, which can have upsides and downsides, but in art, emotion is key, and the trend for conceptual art is a trend to coldness. All good art should contain elements of mystery, and even this is no exception.

The painting was conceived as a pair, the expanded into a group of five that formed a line, a striving, reaching for a new path.

A small written piece entitled Emotional Messages in the 2017 Essays section explores the themes in this work.
