Abstract Magazine International | Hiding by Frank Candeloro
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: Welcome Museum Guests by Alex Duensing


Frequently I’ll go away and hide. It makes me feel better about things. It’s not something that as
a grown man I’m especially proud of, butI could be up to a lot worse. Sometimes I’ll tell my
wife I’m going for a walk, but really I’ll just go hide somewhere, maybe the shed or basement,
for an hour or two. I like being home when no one thinks I’m home. I’m not spying or anything,
but it’s nice hearing kitchen sounds from the basement, or yard sounds from the shed. Everything
just sounds a bit warmer when I’m hiding. My family sounds a bit happier.

In the artist’s words:

Alex Duensing. Graduate of William Paterson and Columbia? Yes. Ran for St. Petersburg,
FL City Council? Yes. Won? No. Stopped Mayan Apocalypse on rooftop with performance art?
Yup. Strange but nice fellow? Clearly. Able to create mechanical engines that run completely on
the energy a person creates while appreciating a painting? On occasion.
