Denise Chilcott

Svadhisthana

Sacral and sacred. Warm, illuminating, energizing.
Aglow with the passion of fire, I give you freedom, freedom to feel.
Trust me. Pleasure, not forbidden, essential. Embrace me.
The sweetness of Intimacy. Sensual connection. Surrender…

According to Hindu Tantrism, the Svadhisthana, or sacred chakra, is related to emotions and energy and connects us to others. It is shown as a lotus with six petals and is connected to the colour orange. Writer Denise Chilcott explores the meaning of this bright color in her inspiring piece.

Anna Belleforte

ArtAscent Artist of the Orange call for artists

The common images we have of the Netherlands consists of two major elements: the colour orange which is the national Dutch colour (the colour of the Royal family which hails from the House of Orange), and which can be found almost everywhere, and the typical narrow houses which boast exceptionally ornate gables. In the works presented here, Anna Belleforte brings the two elements together to create fascinating compositions.

Salvatore Arnoldo

Agent Orange and the Unequivocal Doom Posse in the Post-Information Age

The colour orange has had a real rough past couple of months. It was nice when it belonged to carrots, fruit, and the colours of the desert. But with current events as they are, particularly in the seats of high government, it’s been more and more difficult to argue for the color, mixed as it is between red and yellow, blood and sun…

Katrina Carey

The Crossing

He is small for his age, with short brown hair and blue eyes that would bring a flutter to a girl’s stomach one day. But not yet. Today he wanders along the footpath, exploring every inch of pavement with his curious six-year-old eyes. His shoes untied, the laces flick from side to side. They are skinned knees waiting to happen, but he has other thoughts on his mind…

Ordinary Splendor

The fragrant pithy peet and oil caught under my fingernails
A stubborn stain
Reminiscent of a luscious encounter
With a fierce ball of ripe sunset…

Helen Louise Grant

Desert Drawing Amber Breaths

One of my clearest teenage memories of newly living in Egypt was a morning of surprising cold. Cold with fear, I slowly woke up in my mother’s bed to my first African day, and within moments of gaining consciousness I felt warmth and fuzz on the bottoms of my feet. I absolutely froze with the possible danger…

Reading a Poem Before Breakfast

I read a poem called Orange Peel early today
It wasn’t really about orange peel
but about cleaning up garbage
The title of the poem left me
with an image in mind…
