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.

Art: Excursion by D.M. Davis, @dmdavisart WOODLAND POND Stray ebb of night swirls black water from her in a meager grove of orange-leafed trees. She studies the bracken and reeds, looks past the embankment to figures standing in the distance; the man in the straw hat leaning…

Art: Olivier Fonteau, @olivierfonteau.art SAND I’ve searched for my father’s face in the sand. You raised your left arm. A fine veil of golden Sand on your forearm. You smiled, and sang A song about stones & bones, or bony like stones. You moved. A cascade of…

Art: from the Connection Series by C.A.T aka Chaos and Thread, @chaosandthread CONTOUR I removed chastity from my brain Allowing my mind free range. Foraging, I surrender to my true love, erudition. It hasn’t been easy, the rigor of flipping Pages, venturing cultural turfs while Penetrating the…
