We, as humans, favor beauty. Beauty is a common open art call. We love it. But there is a contrast, and even a similarity to something or somebody ugly. Ugliness is a part of life, and sometimes to just embrace ugly artistically and emotionally an artist can find truth and acceptance, and beauty in everything. In this open art call we asked artists for their version of ugly, which may be beauty. It’s all subjective and it always enlightens.
