Floresta, 1957
People are herding animals. They live in groups. Living in groups leads to interactions between members(black structures). The interactions create conflicts(yellow-tinted spots). The conflicts generate wars(grey structures) or rules(blue lines).

Untilted, 2010
Two siblings. They clash constantly. They ridicule, taunt, and fight each other.The elder is fighting for his already established authority and position. The younger is trying to carve a niche for himself. The elder is more weathered and more easily compromises and is ready to get outside help. The younger needs to prove himself, so he knows no compromises and doesn't want any help. Though as a youngest he is a favorite and more spoiled. The biggest prize they are fighting about is the attention of their parents.

Abstraktes Bild (889-12), 1932

There is a conflict. The man conquers nature( a beige pipe in the lower center background) by erecting in its place a huge cement block(the porous gray-blue figure in the upper right part of the picture). The orange flames in the upper left corner show the ongoing struggle. Despite by feeling victorious the man starts an internal conflict. He tries to change the barrier he himself created(the blue scratches, yellow and red lines on the cement) . But it is a much harder task to accomplish.
