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.

I honestly believe ArtAscent is among the best of the quality arts and literary magazines available today.

Each time I read through an issue of ArtAscent, my mind opens up a bit more as to what art can be, what writing can be, and to how the two can enter into a dialogue together. To explore the different ways reader/writer and artist/viewer can converse with each other.
