“I yield to the thoughts that the wind carries as I stand on floating water, whilst her silhouette rejoices at the symphony of the pouring rain. Memory is the extinguished fire of yesterday’s tenderness, but our bodies are not consigned to oblivion. Her lips quiver, and my body is in thirst, lost in the dry summer. In my garden, the sky in tears and her pale skin come in touch, rain droplets glide along the fugitive meadow of wild flowers. Our existence is deluded by an impatient concept, an unattainable idea, the occurrence of two. She now rejoices in pouring rain and I stand on floating water. This storm came in warmth, rivers of nostalgia coalesced in the preterite as time overgrew the alleged realism’s pond. She is my divine factual creation, my everything, my art.”
Aristotle, beyond outlining the essence of poetry, established in his book Poetics the common ground and principles of art, defining its different forms as modes of imitation, differing from one another in three aspects: the medium, the objects and the manner of imitation. Art is the language of humanity, it manifests itself in rhythm, tune and metre, consecutively, combined or singly; it is “fabricated” on the basis of men in action, their representation as marks of moral difference, and conveyed through the singularities and forms of communication, extending indefinitely towards the boundaries of impossibility.
History is built on evidence, evidence guided by the multifaceted individualities of art, the reminiscence of the classical Aristotelian unities: action, time and place. These unities are the core of story-telling and journalism, the fundamental guidelines in linguistic interaction. Therefore, art, as the phoenix, arises; there are flames that remain in the torch of unity: stories to be told, opinions to be shared. Oscar Wilde defined art as the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known; nevertheless, the beauty and complexity of life flourishes from the many forms of individualism and their creations meeting in one single place, the stem of reality, the state of intellectual and emotional maturity.
Our section hopes to achieve the continuity of art as a common language between cultures and mindsets; to give people the opportunity not only of reading about art, but likewise, of writing over desired topics and creating pieces of literature that can heighten the loose standards of the contemporary democratization of art. After all, we are all artists, individuals with the mission of closing the gap in the current societal dissociation, entities with a message that aims to emancipate society from monotony, people willing to characterize the poetic blossom of eternity.
