                               Clinging To The Past

“Clinging to the Past” by Mary Gerakaris was one of the most outstanding entries submitted to the Manhattan Arts International juried “New Beginnings” 2018 online exhibition and a clear choice for an Award of Excellence. The artist’s unique approach to her subject combined with her skillful photographic techniques had an immediate visceral impact on me.  As the curator, it was an honor to include her photograph in the exhibition.”

We excited to share with you five new publication of artwork done by our juror for ABSTRACTIONS 2018, Ellen Fisch.  She comments “Using form, shape, composition, line, and values, the abstract photography I create inspires the imagination to explore each image.”  In these five books of artwork Ellen also states, “All of the abstracts are unique and separate entities; however, when combined in a Folio, each one becomes threaded into a theme with its companions.”  Currently, these five publications of art done by Ellen, are available at   Another 5 are planned for this summer.

Abstractions in the visual arts are about expressing general ideas or qualities of an actual person, object, and action.  It is about expressing ideas and emotions by using elements such as colors and lines without attempting to recreate the original image.  The basis for abstractions is to, in varying degrees, alter the reality of the subject thru Photography or digital art.  This competition invites photographers and digital artists to use their own interpretations of these ideas, using any type of subject matter and using any style of photography or digital art.
