The Art of Decay

by Catherine Gibb

In the art world of immortal pieces and art conservation is there a place for the decaying artwork the piece the evolves before the views eyes that is unstable and will age and decay? Of course the answer is yes there is a place for evolving dying art, you enjoy the mystery of change of watching a private evaluation of piece, the slow change in colour, the removal of line of time, not to be mourned but enjoy and savoured by the viewer tailored and considered by the creator. A subtle mirror of the world forever changing giving as the gift of the mortal artwork that is unforgiving in its decay, in its imperfection and its mortal nature.
