Robert Dash

ArtAscent Artist of the Patterns call for artists

Have you ever thought about why poetry is so popular? It’s all about the patterns — rhyme schemes, and alternation of syllables that create specific harmonious rhythm that hypnotizes us and can even overshadow the content itself. Patterns in photography have the same magic power and artists like Robert Dash know how to use it. Robert Dash is the Gold Artist of the ArtAscent Patterns call for artists.

Diyana Sastrawati Mohamad

A scene in a Rembau kampong

Above the mountain’s scaffold, the sun peeks.
Morning like other mornings, dew and sweat.
Shower by the well, to the song of prayers.
The frog leaps in and swims, the way he does.

Writing about poetry is challenging since its deepest parts can’t be grasped rationally. To find the key to the text, one has to involve all her senses, emotions, and life experiences. Such is the case with this poetic piece by Diyana Sastrawati Mohamad we’re pleased to present you. Diyana is the Gold Writer of the ArtAscent Patterns call for writers.

Monica Tiulescu

ArtAscent Artist of the Patterns call for artists

In a contemporary world, where everything goes online, virtuality invades all spheres of our existence, particularly affecting communication between public and of art. Digital art loses its uniqueness, becoming a net of interrelated visual hypertexts. The latter can be felt as an alternative environment, explored by such artists like Monica Tiulescu. Monica Tiulescu is the Silver Artist of the ArtAscent Patterns call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Patterns issue.

Jessica M. Springman

ArtAscent Artist of the Patterns call for artists

Humanity has a constant need to reflect its knowledge in various art forms. Ornament as a particular artistic type of pattern has been a mediator of cosmological and mythological notions throughout all the epochs. In her intricate pieces, Jessica M. Springman proves pattern hasn’t lost its power even in a contemporary hypervisual epoch. Jessica M. Springman is the Bronze Artist of the ArtAscent Patterns call for artists.

The Patterned Lotus Lace

The lace cloth I bring her
is already patterned,
with white lotuses,
petals and buds,
and roots.

Bieke Stengos

The Best Woman

On the dance floor:
The bride and groom
lead a string of dancers
to feverish bouzoukis. And a
tearstained voice
sends a plaintive song
into the settling dark

The Moon Phases of Love

NEW MOON
We kiss.
I see
Worlds within words all caught
In trapezoids of gold
And streaking lights that merge
Into skies of violet flowers –
Strange carpet of the universe.

Jesse McMurray

Ode of the Hour

In the seasons of illusion, the encephalon is remontant in the most startling of ways, for within every line it has something to say. Between our differences, we seek the Truth, collective acknowledgement underlying our youth. The following to come is about when day met night, when my partner and I joined the plight.
