Artistic Aging

The beauty of age is taken a step further through artwork

Implications - Age is no longer something to be feared, as the boomer generation approaches its retiring age and thus, has come into a second adolescence wherein leisure reigns supreme. This has resulted in the glamorization of age, which is taken a step further as artists explore the true beauty behind growing old. This new fascination with aging signifies a shift as growing old becomes a thing to anticipate, instead of dread.
