It is All About Interpretation
This famous piece of modern art is attributed to an amateur painter, Jakob Theigissi. Jakob Theigissi was supposed to be an obscure director of pornography. Despite his excellence in the "Lower" arts he really thirsted for recognition at a higher plane. This piece in his own words represents the "... storm and confusion of youth. The inability of the young to focus, you start on something but get derailed..."
My interpretation: It seems as if the painter couldn't control his movements. Therefore, this painting represents the uncontrollable madness, the struggle between inherent internal chaos and societal requirement for order and conformity.
What is yours?
