Abstract Magazine International | Poetry
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.

Contortion by Patrick Sylvain

09 Oct 2017, Posted by admin in Poetry

Art: from the Connection Series by C.A.T aka Chaos and Thread, @chaosandthread CONTORTION I had a nightmare again.

Art: Thomas Kräher, @tkraeher WHERE YOU GET LOST OR GO ASTRAY Walking among the city buildings they turning into trees and the memory of trees I think building-less thoughts half-philosophical, half-recuperative: where you get lost or go astray where you court madness or search for the abandoned…

Art: “Reflections” by David Conison, @panopticonison WHO AUTHORIZED YOU TO BE HERE? “Who authorized you to be here?” a yappy dog on the street suddenly asks forsaking yappinesss for a little clear-voiced enunciation. “Who authorized you to be here?” the rain-dappled umbrella carried by an affluent shopper…
