WANDERING CURVES – THE CURVE CHANGES EVERYTHING

Because everyone had so much fun that last time we ran this theme, we decided to   challenge you once again to submit images that, rather than focusing on a particular subject, or color palette, have a curve, or curves, as a critical element.  The possibilities are endless, from winding roads to automobile trim to the curvaceous form of an elephant’s trunk when feeding.  And don’t forget the round edge of grandpa’s bald head or a cold refreshing scoop of ice cream sitting atop a cone.  Curves are all around us all the time.  Capture them as a dominant element of your images and send them in.  Have fun with this.

ELIGIBILITY:

This Call for Entries is open worldwide to both amateur and professional photographers.  NYC4PA invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate. Experimental and mixed techniques are welcome. Only 2-D work is eligible.

TO ENTER:

The entry fee is $35 for the first three images. Additional images may be submitted for $10 each. There is no limit to the number of images submitted.

Prepare your images as JPG, TIF, or PNG files not greater than 2MB. The longest side should be between 800 and 1,280 pixels.  Then please go to: https://client.smarterentry.com/nyc4pa

Deadline: April 30, 2017

I spend a lot of time in nature observing plants, the environment, and natures cycles. While in or out of the studio, I'm creating both complex and compact environments that enliven personal residences, gallery walls, and city streets. In work ranging from large scale sculptural installations, and living compilations, to miniature assemblage and mixed media works on paper, nature is my rubric and my compass. This is the way I make connections between human interests and the environment that surrounds us. 

Simultaneously, nature is my metaphor and material. Grafting together a variety of flat and dimensional elements is not uncommon in my practice.
In different ways, I'll incorporate earth, vines, flowers, roots, seeds, pigment, and wax into sculpture, and mixed media works on paper, more akin to assemblage. Nature and plants frequently act as metaphors for our human experience as they are passively or overtly layered or stitched amidst found imagery, maps, photographs, and words.

What elevates his work from mere craftsmanship is his visionary outlook. Rearranging objects and incorporating an iconography of myths, fairy tales, and personal idiosyncrasies, Warren Muller exudes an envious agility.  Motion, change and improvisation are implied like a glimpse of chaos captured and frozen for a split-second.
