This week I had the pleasure of getting to see Maggie Freed and Yee Li gallery called Introspection. When I walked in I read their brief quote from Plato which stated “why should we not calmly and patiently review our own thoughts, and thoroughly examine and see what these appearances in us really are?”. Once reading the quote I started to look at the art on the walls.

I saw in the painting how colorful they were and how complex they they were. In each painting there are lines going through each other in different directions. This reminded me how we could want certain things in life and at any moment we can just change our mind out of no where. Our minds are complex imagine if we were to examine each thought we had in our mind, there are those thoughts we don’t even share with people. The paintings to me showed how complex are thoughts can be and how they affect our reactions towards other people . We live in world were we make it complex because our minds  but in reality we can be as simple as ever but we rather speak our minds.
