Innocence manifests in each and every person but also in other realms, such as the natural and interpersonal. Throughout an individual’s life, the concept of innocence plays a large role as they consider the value of purity in oneself and others. Although culture circulates conflicting conceptions of innocence and its worth, the idea evokes something unique for each of the creators represented here. With these 22 curated works, the concept of innocence has flowered into diverse, multi-faceted, and deeply personal expressions.
The culmination of these works is a reflection on the way I believe the idea of innocence has a way of softening reality and providing comfort in everyday life.
