Beauty in Art
What is beautiful in art? This question can be confusing or even frustrating when someone thinks about it but personally, I believe that the most beautiful things come from something so simple that it is often overlooked: Life. Pictures of newborn babies,sculptures of animals, murals of forests,or a picture of a funeral with mourning loved ones can all portray an aspect f life that is being celebrated or recognized. Life is beautiful and that is why so many artists try to capture the essence of it. Life is filled with love, happiness, passion, pain, anger, confusion, darkness, and light so having the ability to express all of these intense emotions in one piece of art is and always will be the most beautiful part of art.
