Ney Milá

ArtAscent "Mother Earth" call Gold Artist

Deforestation isn’t a necessarily new narrative in the annals of art history – 19th century naturalist painters often depicted themes of industrialization and civilization as the ruin of nature, and other iterations of this theme most certainly existed even before them. Nevertheless, it is a subject as resonant today as it was in the early Industrial Age, and it is a narrative photographer Ney Milá pursues quietly, to powerful effect, in his straightforwardly entitled series Deforestation. Ney Milá is the Gold Artist of the ArtAscent “Mother Earth” call for artists. To see the full body of work, grab a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Mother Earth” issue.

Jamal de Jong

jamaldejong_collapse

Jamal deJong is very clear about his deafness fueling his explorations and intentions as a painter, but even without that understanding, his work is striking in its evocation of action and impact, of sound and sound waves. And indeed, deJong speaks of his work as visual manifestations of his own curiosity about sound. Jamal is the Bronze Artist of the ArtAscent “Mother Earth” call for artists.

There are terrible moments
of heart pain
when I can feel the Earth
rend herself
for my sake,
for my life,
for all of us,
and I wonder…
