where those of us now over half a century old

 can share our creation and appreciation of art

when we were young and now we’re not

 

Art is a virtually essential

part of being human.

Ordinary people, making their best effort or unable to stop themselves, sing, dance, make music, tell stories, and create images, as well as appreciating art far greater than their own, looking, listening and reading. Art is in and around us all our lives, like nature.

50plusArtSpace is for everyone, but especially for people over 50 years old who have appreciated and created art (even unwittingly) in the course of their lives. It was started in July 2020 by two over-50s (aged 81 and 75 at that time).

50plusArtSpace

 is updated each month.

If you’re at least 50 years old (sorry, youngsters – your time will come as demi-centenarians) and would like to share some of your old or new artwork (literary, visual, musical, other) or your reflections on art in your life, write to CONTACT AND  SUBMISSIONS in English or Spanish.

Literary work (poetry, stories, short novels, essays) can be in either English or Spanish.

Welcome to the June 2021 update of  50plusArtSpace !

There are already 45 previous contributions in the Catalogue, and this month there are 4 new ones.

We hope you enjoy the new contributions and explore the previous ones in the Catalogue if you haven’t already.

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I trained as an industrial designer. Chaos on the one hand and simplicity on the other are aesthetic elements that catch me, and that are part of that training and of my personality. My passion for culture and the arts has led me to venture into various disciplines, with training as a dancer and plastic artist also, and with which I look for balance in my images as an essential part of the composition. Photography has been a way to reinvent myself and create a particular vision of reality through my gaze.

The Green Leaves, a novella. 

Part 2

The cold wind hurled itself against all those on the street, tearing through Rupert’s winter coat. His scarf waved and tickled his frozen cheeks – how could such a silly thing keep your neck warm! – and he had to hold on to his cap to stop it taking off into the traffic.
