Pink

By Amy Salomone

“Pink” is a celebration of life and the connection between living things, both within the moment and across generations. Natural selection is a process by which species change based upon mutations that favour reproduction. As a result of these changes, you see sexual ornamentation of flowers and birds, developing over epochs of time to pass on genetic material to offspring, as well as the elegant design of our lungs and heart. Each functioning as part of a larger system to help deliver nutrients to our trillions of cells. Old is made new again within this collage, utilizing vintage medical illustration and “Hudson River School” masterpieces to make new statements about the natural world and our place within it.


Amy Salomone of Forms Most Beautiful is a mixed media digital collage artist who mixes science and art to explore man’s place in the natural world. Her educational and professional background in science is evident in her art pieces which explore concepts such as evolution and natural selection, animal behaviour, perception and our story within and of this universe. Each piece is designed to tell a part of this story and to act as starting points for thought and discussion, with which we can change our perspectives of how we see ourselves. 

Jellyfish

By Amy Salomone

“Jellyfish” is a commentary on what it takes to survive on this planet as a living organism for long periods of evolutionary time. Einstein once said, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” and this piece is meant to communicate that idea. Jellyfish and plant life have populated this Earth for 500 million years, fungi for 1.5 billion. Modern humans have only populated the Earth for 200,000 years or so. When we look at life in all of its simplicity and complexity compared to our own, we can begin to make sense of what sustains a species for long spans of time. When we look at our own species, we can reflect on our own potential for longevity.

Neural Network

By Amy Salomone

In “Neural Network,” the artist is reimagining and recombining works of naturalist artists and masterful medical illustrators to make a statement about human perception and natural selection. Within this piece, you see neural networks as well as the main organs of the nervous system. Our perceptions of the world are created by our neural network and our brains, not to reflect reality but to instead keep us alive and reproducing. These neural networks are deeply intertwined with the living world around us as humans are voyeurs of the natural world. Living organisms depend upon one another for their reproductive success.
