The paintings that you see here are simulated organisms that evolve in an attempt to satisfy what it is we think they should look like.

Like real organisms, they possess a genetic material that makes them unique.

In this instance, their DNA controls their appearance.

Paintings that thrive within our aesthetic standards go on to bear successive generations of varied paintings.

Those that don't die off.

As time goes on the paintings evolve to look more and more like what we think they should.
