DAMNED Art of the Day Competition for 4/9/12
What is DAMNED
Within the word "damned", it is easy to envision devils, Hades and hellfire. However, damnation may also reflect the eternal condemnation of self and the subtle abuse of one's mind against itself. It may reflect the emotional trappings within the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps the immeasurable tendrils that bind us to our deepest longings or deprivations.
To showcase those extraordinary creations that emanate from within these shadowed moments to often reveal enlightenment within our most darkest hours. This art may be the one true reflection of self to express that beauty does lie within the repulsive, balance within imbalance or salvation within personal damnations.
For those that are entering images, please review the purpose and rules of this contest as several of the images haven't been meeting the contest criteria.
