Dutch Painter Explores the Evolutional Journey From Loss to Personal Strength Through Her New Series

PHOENIX - eTradeWire -- The Lounge at {9} presents Evolving Love, a new series by Dutch painter Melissa Burghardt, opening First Friday, August 2nd, 6-10 PM at {9} The Gallery, 1229 Grand Avenue, Phoenix, AZ.

Through Evolving Love, Burghardt takes the viewer on an evolutional journey from an initial point of pain and loss to finding personal strength and self-awareness on the other side. Each painting tells a story about dreams, confidence and growth with a representational red line that guides the viewer through her overarching journey. Burghardt's personal development and journey are both literally and figuratively represented in the multiple layers of paint built up in her works.

"This series is all about evolving. Evolving self-awareness, evolving thoughts, evolving opinions, evolving strength, evolving love. There is something in your gut, a little spark that wants to shine and burn like a wildfire. Take control and become the person you are. Be open for opinions, be patient, be humble and be wise is. You are the only one who knows what is really important to you. You know what you want to live for. Overcome what holds you back and you will be stronger than ever before. You will find yourself. You will find the path that should be your own. Evolve your love and love will find you." – Melissa Burghardt
