The Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition is accepting submissions for the 2016 jurored show. The theme is:

"Nourish: Food as Sustenance and Pleasure"
Food is the foundation of life: both sustenance for our bodies and the source of great pleasure. Juror Dr. Rebecca Senf is looking for photographs of food, defined in an inclusive way.  She would like to see photographs that address what people eat, the relationship of food to love and nurturing, farming and food production, food allergies, repulsive food, food still lifes and even photographs about photographing food. Other types of food pictures are also welcome.

There is a ton of amazing awards and its a great opportunity to show your work! Texas Women's University hosts the exhibition. The submission deadline is right around the corner though! October 26. Submit your photographs now and don't miss this opportunity! Also, if you know anyone who this would be suited for please pass the info along. Unfortunately it is a national competition so you must be in the United States.


"For it is certain that the infinitude of figures suffices to express all the differences in sensible things." -Descartes

Non representational art is the effort in art to leave the objective sensible world of figural art in an attempt to communicate subjective experience more personally and creatively. Although the aim of this style of art may or may not have been to ultimately find an absolute non representation, I wonder if this absolute is even possible. Descartes in his Rules for the Direction of the Mind points to the nature of figure as a way to see the links between all sensory objects. The painter Piet Mondrian illustrates this wonderfully in his career where we get the priviledge to see in many successive paintings of a tree, a figural abstraction step by step. Mondrian does this by looking at the common lines that create the sensible form of the tree. At the end of this abstracting chain we reach one of the strongest degrees of non representational art thus conceived.

However, thanks to Mondrians obsessive repetition of this subject matter, we can see how even the highest degree of abstraction still has a root in the figural. We can still locate the relationship between the sensible object (the tree) and the successive forms as it becomes more abstracted from this object. Descartes would have surely been a fan of Mondrians work with Descartes persistence on thinkers using successive method to reach conclusions. For example: A links to B, B links to C, C links to D, and therefore it can be said with confidence that A links to D through this continous movement of though.

My question here for non representational art is as follows: Is there a possible absolute non representation in which no causual relation can be found to objective sensible world? Is the artist capable of creating something that is unbound to sensory relations? I have the assumption that this is not possible. Assumptions however, are not worth much until proven through some branch of knowledge, so back to the drawing board to find if it can be proven true or false, plausible or implausible.
