Jeremy Underwood

Gold artist of ArtAscent's 2019 Abstract call for artists.

When it comes to photography and land art, it seems nothing can be more realistic than they are. But a closer look reveals both of these art use tools of abstraction. How? The artwork of Jeremy Underwood brightly demonstrates that.

Susan Nickerson

Sugar Mountain

I sit perched on the edge of the proverbial shrink couch. I reach into my handbag and fumble around for a piece of gum before I divulge my inner secret. “I’m a sugar addict,” I blurt. “I’m also a neurotic and a long-time, anxiety-ridden insomniac.” There. I said it. I have been exposed to my core…

Blending playful fantasy with tender reality, Susan Nickerson’s short yet engaging essay Sugar Mountain offering a fascinating experiment with abstract imagination while also enveloping the reading in an all-too familiar scenario. Using a real-world experience as the inspiration for this piece, Susan channeled the sensations of a moment of misunderstood instruction into a delightful exploration of desires and drives.

Silver artist of ArtAscent's 2019 Abstract call for artists.

Patrick P Januzzi

Silver artist of ArtAscent's 2019 Abstract call for artists.

Music is arguably the most abstract of all arts. It directly addresses our emotions and avoids all cognitive filters. Surrealism aims to do the same, using visual mediums by involving some unconscious, spontaneous impulses, as Patrick P Januzzi does in his pieces.

Bronze artist of ArtAscent's 2019 Abstract call for artists.

Karri McPherson

Bronze artist of ArtAscent's 2019 Abstract call for artists.

Exploring the powers of pure geometry and bold colour, artist Karri McPherson takes the abstract to the incredible extreme in her body of work, including Interrelation No. 1, The Harbinger, and Trajectory. In her paintings, Karri hovers between the simple and the complex, the straightforward and the illusory, through the use of a nuanced palette of vibrant hues and the play of space in the construction of her forms.

Joyce Fox

From Botticelli to Abstract

Poppy’s pink and purple hair first caught Ernest’s attention. He stared at the checkout girl. There was a healthy Botticelliness about her that attracted him, but mainly it was her hair that held his attention. It stood up in wonderful little spikes. Meanwhile Poppy took note of his appearance. Where others were impressed by a man’s ‘abs and butt’, she was a ‘hands and teeth’ girl…
