The Tortured Artist - Cal...
Description

 

“Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.”

~Oscar Wilde

It’s no secret that some of the best artwork comes from “tortured” artists creating with an inspiration rooted from intense feelings such as sorrow, desperation and fear. Art can be a truly liberating and therapeutic process. It can also be a crutch, a mask to hide behind.

With this call for entry we want to know what drives you to create. Interpret your anguish, what’s in your gut? Whether it is love, hate, jealousy, pain or loss, we want to see artwork that was created because it had to be done.

All international artists, professional and amateur and all art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc. Sizes up to 12 feet are acceptable. Work must be able to be hung on a wall to be considered for the live exhibition. Freestanding 3D artworks will be displayed online only. We are now accepting video and poetry entries for both live and online shows.

Accepted entries for this online exhibition will be judged again for a collective live exhibition at our Pasadena Gallery. The artists will be asked if they wish to submit their artwork for the collective exhibition, which is not a requirement to being a part of the online exhibition.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: September 23, 2013
