I have been asked to curate an issue of Poets and Artists Magazine to be published in July of 2015.
The theme I have chosen is Heightened Perceptions.
For my curated issue of Poets and Artists I am seeking paintings that powerfully reflect the ways that individual artists perceive, and respond to the visual world around them. The works can be representational, abstract or somewhere in between. Works derived from both actual observation and/or photographic references will be considered.
Each artist chosen will be asked to submit a short statement about how their visual perceptions are present in the work. I am also interested in how each artist's emotions and imagination may have played a role in the development of imagery.
Artists from anywhere in the world may submit their work, and each artist selected will be sent a complimentary digital edition of the magazine.
All selections will be made by John Seed based on his taste, judgement and curatorial standards.
If you would like to be considered, here is the information you will need:
Deadline: May 1, 2015
