Abstract Magazine International | Dualistic Sonnet by Rose Knapp
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.

Burst splitting
Past realpolitik

Tokyo Tolkien
Beijing Beyoncé

Franciscan Francesca
Flittering past spatial

Geometrical worlds
Draconian dragons

Dagons’ daggers
Mythos and myrrh
