Beauty In Art

This piece of mixed media art, entitled Evolution is by Lisa Ferrante, an artist who is featured in the Main Avenue Galleria in Ocean Grove. I find her art to be beautiful, especially this piece, because of the use of color and imagination. In this piece, I see a butterfly forming in the woman's hair which is fitting because a butterfly is a symbol of evolution. The butterfly and woman suggest a synthesis between people and nature. I find beauty in pieces that I can get lost in and continually notice new things about. I often find that beauty is tied with emotion. This piece emotes excitement, which I find to be beautiful.
