The artist’s and writer’s call for the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Emotion issue is now open.
Emotion fills, lifts, erupts, freezes, floods, and empties us. Are we emotions, or are feelings simply impulses that appear and disappear from our consciousness? Does emotion take us to a higher plane of existence or simply along a preprogrammed path? What are we without these feelings? How do we express them? What in our environment triggers them? Are they contagious? Share your interpretation of what is or inspires EMOTION.
ArtAscent is a theme-based publication and online exhibition that showcases artists and writers from around the world practising a broad range of skills, including painting, illustration, photography, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, textile, jewelry, printmaking, digital graphics, fashion, film, video, installation, performance, story writing and poetry writing.
The selected artists and writers, up to 40, will be published in our print and digital magazine and the two-year online exhibition, as well as receive a free digital copy of the magazine.
