Abstract Magazine International | Where the Wild Things Were by Carol Davis Koss
Abstract seeks fine art in all forms that engages with both the crises and joys of our shared human condition. We seek art that engages the edge of now; we seek to explore a future forward zeitgeist with a respect for the gifts of the past. We are looking for both established and emerging artists across a broad range of genres. Our criterion is quality.

Art: Silver Lining by Andrew Flint Shipman


I have mislaid shadows
misplaced their sullen corners
I have lost light
swallowed dark’s debris
Midnight’s razor fells dawn
stricken in one rasp
Nothing is still
All – turned to stone
