Gabriel Landscape

In 1948, Edward Tolman introduced the concept of Cognitive Map which refers to a semantic network used by individuals to acquire, code, and decode information and phenomena in their everyday spatial environment. But what if the universe which surrounds you looks like a dreamlike vision? Audrey Piguet challenges her public by presenting the viewers with fantastic universes where reality and imagination overlap.

Manny Viega

Good Gods Speak Softly

The boy had run until his legs could carry him no farther. They had seized up some while ago. At first naked fear had blinded his pain, but now that he had put some distance between himself and the battlefield, its sedative effect had worn off, and he began to feel the sting of his retreat…

Manny Viega’s prose enlivens the senses, and this energy is tangible in his story, “Good Gods Speak Softly.” In it, he conjures imagery of a lost soldier and an encounter with a mysterious person that proves more frightening than the battlefront itself.

Vallenssia

ArtAscent Artist of the Lost call for artists

Offering a refreshed take on the classical portrait, Vallenssia breaks the bounds of the traditional female likeness. Losing herself within the parameters of abstract and the real, Vallenssia aims to blend these elements to create striking yet subtle portraits. Such is the balance struck in works such as Words Unspoken, Silent and Fearless, all of which are featured in this issue.

Vallenssia is the Bronze Artist of the ArtAscent Lost call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Lost issue.

Marian Kaplun Shapiro

Six Fantasies of Telemann (Murdered This Evening in Paris)

The fat grey pigeon’s lost her way.
Somehow, she’s ended up in the Metro.
Despite the ample crumbs, she wants out, but
she can’t tell east from west, north from south…

The Black Swan

I wanted love.
She wanted lust.
When he came to meet us,
He found my lips on his;
But the marks on his back-
That’s what I lost to her…
