Hugo Hentoff

ArtAscent Artist of the Portraits call for artists

Fashioned through an experimental process, photographic prints made by Hugo Hentoff are imbued with contradictions. Intricately detailed hair of the portrayed subjects stands in opposition to their blurry, hard-to-recognize faces, allowing for free interpretation of their physical characteristics, as well as their true character. Still, these photographic pieces are made as portraits, encapsulating more than mere physicality of the models. Hugo Hentoff is the Silver Artist of the ArtAscent “Portraits” call for artists.

Brian DiNicola

ArtAscent Artist of the Portraits call for artists

Embracing figuration as the stylistic approach to the art of painting, Brian DiNicola found the necessary abundance of expressive opportunities in portraiture. Observing human anatomy as a universe of narratives displayed in physicality and garments of an individual, this young artist sees it as the ideal platform to explore problems in paint. Brian DiNicola is the Bronze Artist of the ArtAscent “Portraits” call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Portraits” issue.

Lynda Green

Personal Ink

James P. Middling had spent the morning describing in detail the latest villain, the villain his Inspector Taylor would eventually, as always, track down and bring to justice. James liked to fashion the cast of characters, complete with backstories, before embarking on his latest crime thriller…

What if my written word came to life, literally? This question probably enters the mind of every writer on at least one occasion. Meditating on such an idea, Lynda Green penned a short story entitled “Personal Ink,” condensing some of the important issues from the life of a man and the life of a writer in one uncanny short story. Lynda Green is the Gold Writer of the ArtAscent “Portraits” call for writers. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Portraits” issue.

The Kiss

Cloudy Puget Sound: on a pier’s last stand
they stood alone, over pillowed whitecaps,
She and He, awaiting an approaching ferry,
I thought as much, perhaps…

Old Ears

The sergeant walks gingerly along the line of troops, helmet heads lying low in holes, blades of grass tickling their chinstraps. She passes out earplugs and they place them in their pockets, to mound, unused, in a hapless pile at home…

Her Face in the Crowd

It’s the way her eyes glimmer as she walks into the room, a projection of strength that cuts through the gloom. They scan through the crowd of people merely passing by, until they lock onto you and turn a little shy…

Peter Court

The Crown Prince

Spatters freckle the frame, the table top, the floor. Some have been flicked or flipped, others hurled, scattered and some have simply fallen, unattended. The painter doesn’t notice them. Never has. His eye is intent on the bloated corpuscle in the suit and tie…
