Great Art Creates Tension

While on a recent business trip to Salt Lake City, a design colleague ranted about the bland and uninspiring paintings in the hotel we were staying at.

A few days later, as I strolled through East Village, I came across a hotel with a striking charcoal painting displayed in its glass front. The artwork depicted a large man jumping off the top rope and body slamming a baby. The painting is amusing, it’s edgy, it’s controversial, and I love it. The picture’s polarizing nature has created tension, causing me to think about it for several days.
