Predator


These are strange times. Horrible times. Purging times. Trump and the Weinstein scandal have sharpened our radar. We are now in a different awareness. We all have been affected by predators from every angle possible. It’s a time for expression. It’s a time for clarity. It’s a time for change. It’s time for redemption. We asked in this open international art call that the artist expresses artistically how they feel about this time and predators. We asked them to define the word predator.

H2O


Our water-themed open art call was named “H2O”. Water, whether we acknowledge it or not, is our everything. It’s what we’re made of, what we need to survive, what calms us, and what makes up most of our earth. It’s also what we tend to obsess about in art from oceanscapes to lakeside images to swimming pools to the water that makes up our bodies. It’s so inclusive that everyone knows what the chemical name is, H2O, two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. In this H2O open art call we asked to see an artist’s best artwork about water.
