• Aesthetic choices are made that impart a frenzied, disorienting impression

Works of art with a chaotic/frenetic aesthetic might incorporate numerous discordant visual elements, clashing colors, erratic edges, erratic mark making, perhaps jarring angular shapes, and/or randomly altered textures. If representational, such works might depict characters or scenes that are in a state of upheaval/distress.

An artist might manifest a chaotic/frenetic aesthetic in a piece due to his or her own personality, or the artist might choose this aesthetic as a reflection of the characters/objects/moment in history being portrayed. A chaotic/frenetic aesthetic might also be adopted to make a piece suitable for a setting or purpose that demands something chaotic.
