PPM’s Issue 18 is a wrap just in time for the holidays.
One of Pink Panther Magazine’s visions is to see every woman connect with other women in order to glean from each other’s experiences and to draw upon the encouragement and support a sisterhood of shared interests can provide. The art, poetry, and articles selected for each issue cover a plethora of feminist experiences—most of which center on the individual woman and how she reacts, adapts, and navigates through her daily endeavors.
The common threads that bind the featured art and poetry of Issue 18 together center on this idea of the individual woman’s quest to find places to exist as her unique, individual self. The many faces of self-doubt and self-loathing, and how they influence self-perceptions, are another reoccurring motif in this edition. In an attempt to understand the complex inner workings of woman and the inspiration she exhales while navigating life’s rough waters, the articles, art, and poetry selected for this issue focus on what is at the core of experience and the impressive aspects associated with overcoming.

“GROUP FEATURED ARTIST”
Tatjana Larina is our featured artist for November 2012.
Tatjana’s earthy, imaginative, and often otherworldly works of art invite viewers into creative spaces that evoke one’s spiritual connectedness to her organic existence. She maximises these elements, and uses colour to establish a mood and to emote the energy that radiates in these under-explored dimensions of human existence.
The urban fantasy Tatjana infuses into her craft is provocative, drawing viewers into the challenge of unraveling the intricacies and depth of meaning that are embedded in each piece. So although the dynamics at work are often surrealistic—and even topically whimsical at times—there is a clear sense of purpose in the elements she includes in her work. The dimension she crafts into her art encourages viewers to pause and reflect, to look a little deeper, and after that, deeper still.
There are dimensions to human existence and experience, depths worthy of admiration and unrushed reflection. Tatjana’s piece entitled Daydream illustrates the creator’s interpretation of “Allegory of self, holding heart full of love, dreams, doubt, delight of love, sadness and (at the) same time peace and happiness of feeling (like a) complete person.” Its employment of symbolic imagery, soft lines, emotive colour combinations, and expression establish an overall mood, while encouraging a viewer’s exploration of depth of perspective and understanding.
