About The Isolated Artists.

The Isolated Artists has been created by a dedicated group of professional artists working to establish a community of collaborators and creatives to produce periodical ezines featuring work around a central theme. The Isolated Artists is purposefully removed from the social mediated world of distraction, seeking instead to encourage challenging creative briefs, showcasing emerging and established talent and reaching an ever-expanding creative audience. Collectively, through inclusion, The Isolated Artists challenge the solitude of the artist through meaningful interpretation of its briefs. Submitted work will be judged on its own merits, without consideration of experience or prestige.

Initial avenues you may wish to explore

  • Is connection vital for your artistic wellbeing and productivity?
  • Is connection you with your talent, maybe expressive and deep, seeking an external audience?
  • Does connection happen from the moment you begin your creative process, or when you finish?
  • Maybe beyond the finished piece to the reactions of your audience?
  • Or is connection outside of the studio for you?

We look forward to seeing your interpretation. Now, out with those pencils, paints, cameras, quill pens, clay and yes, maybe even the odd digital work! Welcome – you are now part of The Isolated Artists.
