Call For DAMNED Art
damned -adj. 1. condemned to eternal punishment. 2. detestable; loathsome. 3. complete; absolute
Within the word, it is easy to envision devils and hellfire. However, it also reflects the eternal condemnation of self and the subtle mind against itself. It may reflect the emotional trappings within the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps the binding tendrils of our deepest longings or depravations.
DAMNED is an exhibition of those extraordinary artists who know that without darkness, there is no light, that beauty does reside within the repulsive and enlightenment within our darkest hours. This art may be the one true reflection of self that make us balanced within our personal damnations…or possibly it is an expressive visual therapy…or simply a sign that there is amazingly inexplicable inside without comparison.
rtists of all mediums from anywhere in the world are welcome to submit their work for DAMNED. There are no restrictions on genre or content but the more deeply personal and powerfully introspective, the better.
You may submit as many pieces not previously submitted to DAMNED as you like for review. Only one JPG image per piece is needed though montage images of three dimensional art is acceptable.
Submissions must be of original design by the submitting artist. Models please do not submit without the artist’s permission.
All images must be in JPG format and in reasonable size (under 500k please). Each image should be titled with artist’s name and name of piece (ex: artistname_piecetitle.jpg).
Submission deadline is September 15 2013.
