Finding these beautiful faces painted directly onto a newsprint collage has been the highlight of my week thus far. The features seem to float in front of a fog of text and photos behind them.

I love finding beauty juxtaposed with the ordinary.

These paintings are by South Korean artist, Shin Young An. She now lives and works in New Jersey. In her artist statement she writes “Often, world and national events impose an emotional response on the artist, who is otherwise powerless to influence such events. The canvas can become the artist’s vehicle of expression.”

Have a lovely Tuesday,
