  • 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.

Issue Two – Spring Equinox 2020 – ‘Death & Re-Birth’

The Isolated Artists, the new e-zine connecting artists, welcomes submissions for inclusion on the theme of ‘Death & Re-Birth’.

Featured work will be given x1 A4 page spread and credited with name, one social media link or website.

Theme: Death & Re-Birth

As we transition from Winter to Spring, we pass beyond death to the hope of new birth, new life, new ideas, new dreams, new goals. We make new resolutions, pursue an end to old behaviours that no longer serve us, search for the fresh, new ideas that we can nurture, giving them energy to bloom into new creations. What does this transition mean to you? As an artist, how do you respond to the shifting of the old to the new?

Initial avenues you may wish to explore

  • Do you promise yourself new habits, routines and goals in your creative life?
  • How does the shifting of darker days to longer days affect you creatively?
  • From where do you draw inspiration during the cold, bleak Winter months before the arrival of Spring?
  • What cycles of death and re-birth have you allowed to pass as an artist and how has this affected your perception on life?

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.
