Sukey Bryan

sukeybryan.icebergtwo

In a series of paintings created by Sukey Bryan, all of the celestial nuances fuse over shapes of drift ice and flow through pools of freshwater in conversation with stirs of clouds. They colour the uncompromising traits of nature, standing as monuments to the shifts in climate and to the evolving life of the planet. Sukey Bryan is the Gold Artist of the ArtAscent “Blue” Call For Artists! Read about this artist in the Blue edition of ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal.

Alex Steiner

Azure Blues

I love BLUE.
Always have.
“BLUE.”
Blue; reminds me of home.

Azure blue reflections painted my childhood’s oceans.
Oceans that glimmer with dad’s hue.
Just like my eyes.
“Blue,” the name everyone had taken me for and my eyes…

Beginning with a short, emotional poem, Alex Steiner paints the story of Blue, the ode to her father who bequeathed her an ocean of memories and an endless lake of life lessons. “I love BLUE,” says the writer as she sophisticatedly draws the reader into her lexemic play of tiering metaphors and evocations, all drenched in a particular shade of azure.

Erick Vera

Erick Vera - ArtAscent "Blue" Distinguished Artist

Materializing his personal vision of blue, Erick Vera sculpted a pair of figures rendering the theme from a dual vantage point. Sentiments blend with texture in these personifications of inanimate matter, portraying the artist’s associations of blue water and ice as represented by a female and a male aspect. Erick Vera is the Bronze Artist of the ArtAscent “Blue” Call For Artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Blue” issue.

Seventeen Blue Fires Burning

1. Suppose I were to say I fell in love with the idea of mountains burning. Suppose I were to sit on the deck, the yellow sun encased in grey smoke, turning the wood into an orange hue and the shadows into a steady collection of blue, and think about what the billows of white smoke mean to me: fascination. How someone started a forest fire and…

Sea Bloom

A shore. A path of stones past temples fallen long before any tales we know. Scents of evening herbs – fennel, calamint, spurge – of antique earths. No one following, no one before. No voices from a present time, no line dividing sea from sky. The mist curved high, immense…

Blue

When she cries,
it is the colour of the trace
left by the teardrop falling down her cheek

When she blinks,
it is the colour of her eyes
sparkling in the moonlight against the dark night sky

When she speaks…

Blue Over Belvedere

Ultimately, the cat was named “Blue” instead of her daughter. It turned out well because the name became trendy that year and Nina pitied the multiple little “Blues.” At least to her, the children named “Blue” would always be saddled with invisible sandbags of nostalgia. They would never understand, but blue had…
