“the beautiful is always strange” - Charles Baudelaire
Drifting, daydreaming, waning – beauty is a word that, in its quietude, conjures awe. Simultaneously powerful and vulnerable, it is an elusive language of visual effect that challenges ideas while escaping an exacting definition. The compelling motive to alter perception alone gives reason to beauty. Within this is a fusion of the familiar and the alien, ultimately persuading the viewer with a rush of visual pleasure. Through this. the vernacular of beauty has the potential to be an influential instrument for change.
