The manifestation of beauty

 

“A work of art is the result or expression of nature, in miniature.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

For centuries have poets, writers and artists immersed themselves in nature to satisfy their longing for beauty – a nobler need of man.

Nature is wholeness, the perfect balance between change and permanence, and enigmatic convulsive splendor. We can try to capture it, explain or define it but true natural beauty manifests itself in a multiplicity of forms in the most unforeseen fleeting instants. It is an ultimate insomuch as it is a catalyst for thought, remembrance and understanding.

When we wander off into nature and let it react to us freely, we find deep connection, or even have revelations. What we bring back is a unified vision of nature’s infinite array of shapes, forms and colors conveyed in its totality through our art.

Art thus is the distillation of nature by man.
