With the start of 2018, NōD Magazine is changing things up for our 23rd issue! Instead of giving you a theme, we’re letting you choose your own based on the winning entry, ‘The Hunt’ by Janeen Scott from our Fall 2017 Cover Contest. Her piece reminds us of fairy tales that keep us up at night. We see The Hunt as an examination of myth, meaning making, and sexuality– we question the temerity of bodies that are vulnerable and ritualistic in nature. So, send us your best, most mythical and beautiful work. We can’t wait to read it. See our full submission guidelines here:
Janeen Scott is a Calgarian artist completing her BFA at The Alberta College of Art and Design with a major in painting. Her practice focuses primarily on the ritualistic nature of drawing and the continuous representation of a witch entity that functions as her self-portrait. She derives material, both visual and otherwise from a constant juxtaposition of her Catholic upbringing and its relationship and parallels to paganism, occultism and witchcraft. She currently investigates the symbolism and religious significance of early Christian unicorn tapestries. Ultimately, she is engaging in an iconographic exploration of memory, sexuality, eroticism and personal reflection. You can find her on instagram, @ghostgurrrl.
We can’t wait to see your submissions!
Deadline: March 15th, 2018
