• The piece is given an overall tone of hateful rage

Works of art that express a hostile/angry tone might depict violent or enraged characters in conflict, inciting conflict, or preparing for conflict. Beyond representation, stylistic elements such as strong clashing colors, slashing brushstrokes, splattering, and/or haphazard scraping or scratching might contribute to a hostile/angry feeling in a piece.

An artist might impart a hostile/angry tone to a piece due to his or her own emotional state, or the artist might choose to evoke this tone as a reflection of the characters being portrayed. A hostile/angry tone might also be adopted to suit a piece meant for a setting or purpose that demands an expression of outrage.
