This gallery is meant to depict all that is innocent and pure. Innocence, with a broad definition meaning anything from guiltless to naive and simple, has an impact on every day life because it is an essence of human nature; we are all born innocent. Sometimes, we struggle with innocence because it may not be the most popular thing to do (a teenager may be considered cool if they drink underage). Other times, innocence is something we struggle to convince others of. Still others are convinced that the age of innocence is gone, that corruption and hatred have so embedded themselves into our culture that true innocence can never be achieved. As you explore the following works, take into consideration not just their outward beauty, but perhaps, their more subtle clues as to what the artist was trying to convey, and more importantly, your own understanding of each piece.
