Merriam-Webster defines equilibrium as a state where opposing forces or actions are balanced so that one is not stronger than the other, or a state of emotional balance or calmness. I was referring to both kinds of equilibrium when I created this. I added the word, “conditional”, because it looks good in the title. No other reason. Though if you think about it long enough, it makes sense when applied to “equilibrium”. Well, it does in my mind. But I’m an artist.
See the two abstract faces at the bottom? One is facing the left, the other faces the right. One is happy and the other is sad. The four directions are above their heads. A careful look at this drawing will reveal a bird, my hand and other symbols, depending on your imagination. 😀
Birds represent lots of things in symbology. That gives this abstract drawing balance. The faces are opposite. That gives it more balance. The right and left bluish borders I painted are not the same size, neither are the top and bottom borders. I feel that balances things out, even more. The extreme opposites of black and white are balanced out by the blue border. Hands in art symbolize mankind and human emotions. In some cultures, they are symbolic of the divine. The hand has five digits. I feel five is a very balanced number. A little research proves that it is very significant in some cultures. If I had the time I’d probably count the dots of paint on this thing to see if they added up to a multiple of five. Aint nobody got time for that! 😀
My point: Balance doesn’t always look that way on the outside. Here is the link to where you may buy this on many products: link to conditional equilibrium
