‘Literature is the most powerful means we have for communicating consciousness’, said author Garth Greenwell. The author of a new book, ‘Cleanness’ which I have yet to read, as I am currently rereading his debut ‘What belongs to you’, a book that has served Greenwell, so well. It’s not the subject that draws me as much as the equisite literature that soaks every line. However, I believe good art can be the most powerful means we have for communicating consciousness. The kind of art that worms its way into a person’s being, art that imbues our lives, illuminating our innermost thoughts with eloquence, compassion. Art teaches us to be more nurturing towards ourselves as we strive to make the best of our circumstances: be it, frustrated ambitions, imperfections of age. Art shows us the palpable virtue of life as we’re forced to lead it. It is the advertising for the things we really need and none are more so apparent than in this weeks Showcase.
I want to personally thank all of the featured talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week. Together, as we exchange our vision, our fears, our hopes and our dreams, we become one.
If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here. You can also submit images to our Instagram tag for this section #mobilephotographyandimagery.
