NOT SO ORDINARY OBJECTS
There is a quiet beauty in everyday life
There is a quiet beauty in everyday life. The beauty of those actions that we perform every day and that are a spontaneous expression of our feelings. In familiar objects there is a beauty, something we do not see but feel. Objects hold memories, habits, dreams, affections, anxieties, dramas. They express silent poetry celebrated by simple actions. Narrating the wonder that is hidden in everyday life is possible. Art does not need exceptional structures, it deals with listening and feeling the spirit of things, and this is only possible if we go further that thin line that makes a common object a work of art.
All artists interested in participating are asked to submit only portraits of objects, accompanied by a description or motivation that led to the creation of the work itself.
We ask you to avoid classic still life compositions.
