Results Contest : Melancholy

Published by Yvette Depaepe  the 27th of April 2022


Melancholy often plays a role in our encounters with art works and it is also present in some of our aesthetic responses to the natural environment but also in everyday situations that give reason for melancholy to arise. All submissions are expressing beautifully melancholy as an aesthetic emotion.

1st place: Fernando Alves 
2nd place: Stefan Buder
