Artwork Size: 41 x 29.5 in "The State of Critical Thinking" is a graphite, ink, and watercolor portrait on paper by Cuban artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco. In this piece, the artist explores the concept of independent thought. "We are exposed to so many different opinions and passions," says Francisco. "It is up to us to follow our intuition and get our goals." He includes 15 insects flying, falling, or resting throughout the piece. Francisco incorporates insects in many of his paintings. Insects flying up represent freedom, insects flying down or falling represent chaos, and insects at rest represent balance between the two.
