Rise: Call For Art

Rise: Call For Art

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, October 30, 2021

Create! Magazine is thrilled to invite visual artists to submit their work to a juried international virtual exhibition curated by Erika B Hess, painter, curator, and host of the podcast I Like Your Work.

Theme: Rise

After a series of setbacks or a difficult season as artists, we often use our work to rise again. Art can be a form of healing, processing current events, or overcoming a personal struggle. What does it mean for you to rise again and again? What role does art play in your resiliency?

We are thrilled to invite you to participate in our juried virtual exhibition exploring this topic. We welcome all media, and the theme is open to the artist’s interpretation.

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.
