675February Issue of The Divine Animal Is Now Online
- Feb 9, 2004The February issue of The Divine Animal features groundbreaking
contemporary painting, photography, poetry, fiction and essays with
erotic content, and that also meet the highest standards of
Our featured artists are Balinese painters Pranoto and Kerry
Pendergrast. Their work has the potential to redefine modern art by a
synthesis of European and Indonesian traditions that sinks its roots
deep into the Earth and embraces humanity.
We also feature a disturbing photographic essay by Emmy Award-winning
cinematographer Dustin Morrow, haunting nudes by Fred and Lara Ellis,
and chilling portraits of Third World prostitution by highly
respected photojournalist Piet den Blanken, which accompany an essay
about "The Dark Side of Eros."
"Songs of Innocence and Experience," by John Yates, is a sensitive
and compassionate poetic exploration of a young girl's emerging sense
of eros in forming her own identity, and the development of self-
consciousness that distances her from innocence. This work is without
precedent in capturing the human birthright of beauty and eros, and
is a bittersweet reminder to adults about what they have lost.
The February issue also features powerful and groundbreaking fiction
by Sieannen Bell, poetry by Mark Turcotte, whose work is very highly
regarded, excerpts from a play by Lauren Raine, and fiction and
poetry by several other fine writers.
We are constantly looking for talented artists, photographers, poets
and writers. We invite your submissions, and assure you that your
work will be warmly received and treated with respect.
