If you are only moved by color relationships, you are missing the point. I am interested in expressing the big emotions – tragedy, ecstasy, doom.”
Fifteen artists will be selected for an online group exhibit, “Red 2019 ” at Gallery25N; the exhibit and artists will be extensively marketed worldwide to over 32,000 people including art buyers, gallery owners, curators, collectors, etc.
One artist’s work will be selected to receive the “Christopher E. Burke Fine Art Grant” of $300. That artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online marketing.
Theme and Selection
“RED 2019” – The curators are looking for artwork that reflects an artist’s interpretation of a subject or theme enhanced through the use of the color red. The extent of this application has no required parameters; the choice rests within the artist’s vision. Colors often symbolize a variety of emotions, an artist’s truth, perhaps wild fantasies—from war, power, heat, love, sexuality, anger, and joy to “soft” idealisms—these are but a few examples. Red, in particular here, can be used to draw the viewer closer emotionally in a way which enhances their reaction to the art. It may define intuitively an intended focal point that carries the viewer more deeply into the artist’s message.
This competition is open to all artists/photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.
