Issue 20

‘Reality & Illusion’

Release date: March 24th 2020

Reality is subject to the mind’s creation.

Diane Stein

Illusion can be interpreted as an essential factor within creativity. Then, so could reality. Human nature compels us to capture what we see as our own reality and to express that perception, in order to obtain validation or acceptance. Often simultaneously, illusions of thoughts, feelings, visions and cultures are essential to art.

We want issue 20 to show the convergence of art, reality and illusion.
