The stamp of approval from these curators provides a tremendous benefit to both artists and collectors.

This is the inaugural exhibit under the helm of Saatchi Online’s new CEO, Margo Spiritus. “Our mission at Saatchi Online is to provide all artists with the tools, opportunity and support to have sustainable careers and to make a living selling their art. By providing a global platform visited by art lovers from over 190 countries each month, we are able to connect consumers and curators alike who would otherwise never have the opportunity to discover their work,” says Spiritus.

Saatchi Online was started by the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2006 in order to help artists without gallery representation to find an audience for their work. It is estimated that over 1 million artists across the globe aren’t represented by galleries. Saatchi Online provides these talented artists with a platform to showcase and sell their work in an environment with an excellent reputation for introducing outstanding artists.

Sanatçı “boşluğu” dönüştürememeyi, bunaltıyı, çöküşü ya da tam tersi olarak bunun ifade edilemezliğini dillendirendi…

An ecopoem might play with slippages, but the play will lead to further connections.

Ecopoetry does share a space with science. One of the concerns of ecopoetry is non-human nature (it shares this concern with the critical apparatus it borrows from, ecocriticism). It certainly shares that concern with most of the world’s history of poetry: How can we connect with non-human nature that seems so much more, so much larger than ourselves? How can we understand it?
