Hannah Moore

hannahmoore_contained(bucket)

Hannah Moore’s series Containment has the visual impact of stumbling upon a crime scene – a disembodied arm scrabbling to free itself from a boot, a face bulging from the rusted gash of a bucket, a body lamenting its entrapment amid the detritus crammed into a cooler – and yet it somehow manages simultaneously to offer optimism, a sense that, were they to continue to push, pull, and contort themselves, these unfortunate folks might actually have a chance. Hannah Moore is the Gold Artist of the ArtAscent “Emergence” call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Emergence” issue.

Leila May

May_Leila_Photo1

The pre-Romanticist poets would have found melancholy inspiration in Leila May’s series The Pirate Steals A Bride. Indeed, the gothic overtones of these works would lend themselves nicely to any Keatsian ode to the fleeting nature of sensual love, the sentimentality of death, and nature’s enduring embrace of both. Leila May is the Silver Artist of the ArtAscent “Emergence” call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Emergence” issue.

Emergence

There was once a song Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime, and it caught Jennifer by the throat each time she heard it. “But Nobody loves me…” was her wail. “Why has love deserted me?” “Am I just a Nobody? A Nobody just waiting for a Somebody?” They had told her at school that if she wanted to make something of herself, to be Somebody, then she’d have to…

The Dancing Phoenix

Can ashes from yesterday’s fire
Rise to tomorrow’s future
While taking shape and form
Step by step?

Maybe we need to dance,
Because then we move back,
As time moves forward
Step by step…

Down the Road

On most days I walk to school with the guys from my neighborhood and meet up with them afterwards to hang out at the recreation center where we shoot baskets and BS about sports, which we know about, and sex, about which we don’t have a clue. These are my streetwise friends, semi-delinquent, unrefined and without pretensions. When I’m with them, I’m just like them. We take up more space than the polite kids, jostling each other, goosing each other, pushing, shouting, spitting between our teeth; goading passersby’s into…
