Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 14 August 2016

Share

Creative arts and rejection go hand in hand, the latter is almost part of the process. It’s not just within the creative arts that we hanker to be accepted, to suceed, to realise our dreams. We all need each other to thrive, it’s the nature of humanity, human beings need one another. A young child experiencing unconditional love will live, will thrive, will prosper, will flourish, grow and bloom. Love is essential to early development but other than early childhood, rejection is hardly physically life-threatning. But it hurts, rejection in any form hurts, because our feelings are deeply intimate.

When we are judged unfairly through untruths, the more upset we become and there are a lot of untruths out there…everyday we make more tears, none of us need more pain… So, for crying out loud, how do we make rejection work for us? How do we stop feeling bad? You must remember that one, or thousands of rejections, personal and/or professional, does not mean that you failed, it means you tried. Keep doing that, try again.

As I have mentioned before, art and health are in-explicity linked – there are obvious health benefits and we have to keep those beneifts in the forefront of our mindsets. You will never forget your first rejection, sometimes that rejection will stay with you, deeply. Rejection can teach you a lot about yourself and those around you. Keep in mind, the dignity of difference, keep in mind, we all feel pain, we all feel fear and most of all, we all feel love. We all have the capacity to make love, let’s focus on that.

This weeks Flickr mobile photograhy and art showcase is bursting with artists’ creations, artists that continue to create, continue to face their fears of rejection; knowing that not only will their work be judged but also the person behind the work.

Mobile Art – APPart – Eighth Flickr Group Showcase – TheAppWhisperer

Share

I am delighted to publish our very latest APPart Mobile Art Flickr Group Showcase. Curated by our editor Bobbi McMurry and produced by myself. Over to Bobbi…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

“It’s hard to believe we are already to the last AppArt showcase of 2015.  I’ve enjoyed being part of this amazing group of artists, it’s been a year of wonderful creativity and growth for so many.  Our exposure to each other’s art and commentary serve as a window to the people behind the art, so while many of us are “friends” only on social media, we likely know more about each other than some of our friends in the “real world”. Thank you for giving so much of yourselves, your creativity, and your time; let’s make 2016 bigger and better!

Ever noticed that sometimes the most brilliant solutions are those that are so simple and seemingly evident that we can’t believe it wasn’t thought of before. The first examples that come to my mind are the plastic ketchup bottle, and wheeled suitcase. “Paradise Lost” is an image that exemplifies the concept of successfully approaching a solution in the simplest way. Created by thelcf666, he’s combined the forbidden fruit with the notorious Serpent who successfully tempted Eve all those years ago. The Serpent’s mouth open wide, fangs revealed as if ready to strike contrasted by the soft palette and gentle nature of hand holding it. This is clearly not Eve’s hand, as it is most definitely that of a man. There is no evident wound, but blood is dripping off the hand from below the apple rather than coming off the fangs. It seems that what we are looking at is Adam’s choice, he’s been handed the ill-fated fruit so obviously evil, but takes a bite all the same. Some say that Eve is to blame for all mankind’s woes, but this image seems to suggest otherwise. Here, Adam also was tempted, that while Eve presented the fruit to Adam, he too was susceptible to a temptation he was unable to resist. The original paradise was lost as a result of poor decision making and lack of willpower by both Adam and Eve”.

Huge congratulations to all of this Showcases featured APPartists:  Mariette Schrijver, Andrea Koerner, Kristie, Kate Zari Roberts, Ile Mont, Patricia Januszkiewicz, Brett Chenoweth, Mandolina Moon, Armineh Hovanesian, Aldo Pacheco, nlmcc, Gary Ryon, Michelle Robinson, Claude Panneton, Barb Nebel, Karen Axelrad, Kirsten Fenton, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Carolyn Hall Young, momurum, Meri Walker, Eliza Badoiu, thelcf666, Giulia Baita, Candice Railton, Poetic Medium, BlemishedEye, Louise Whiting, Lorenka Campos, Allyson Marie, Pat Brown.
