Submission Call for Provocative Patterns

 

  • The artwork may be any subject matter, including the figure, portraiture, still life, animal/wildlife, landscape/cityscape/any-type-of-scape, etc. 

  • Realism only, in the widest sense of the word, i.e., as long as I can see what it is, I consider it a form of Realism.

  • Paintings may be of an academic approach, or a more unconventional variety, they may be executed loosely, tightly, and anything in between—as long as the artwork contains some sort of pattern.

  • Any media: Oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, inks, tempera, color pencil, pastel, etc.

  • No photography, video, collage, or digital art.

  • All work must be the artist’s original conception, executed entirely by the artist.

  • No restrictions on size or number of submissions.

  • Paintings need not be available for sale.

  • Participation for PoetsArtists members or by invitation of the curator.

 

Provocative Patterns

The theme of this special edition, Provocative Patterns, may be interpreted in multiple ways which I leave in large part to the imagination of the artist.

As a guideline: A pattern can be a repeated design, decoration, motif, marks or brushstrokes. A pattern can also suggest a behavior, a habit, or a stimulus. A pattern may be recurrent, repetitive, or rhythmic.

Provocative can mean exciting, alluring, seductive, tempting, suggestive, inviting, infuriating, or vexing. Provocative can imply causing a strong emotional reaction or suggest contemplation.

How to Submit

  • Images should be 300 dpi with a minimum of 3000 pixels wide and not larger than 5MB.

  • Images should be in JPG format RGB color - not TIFF or any other format.

  • Title all images like this: First Name_Last Name_Title of Work_medium_Size in inches_Year.

    • title the Word file with your name

  • Important: Also write a few lines about each submitted painting regarding its meaning, symbolic content, subject matter, and/or creative intention.
