I have had this project stewing around in my brain for years. Now is the time to put it into action. Without giving to much away, the project is as follows... "Human Form" will be a provocative and playful experience. Immersing the viewer in what it means to have this glorious vessel, we call a body. Featuring 25 9' Paintings. Viewers will be able to manipulate the human forms depicted in these paintings. Bringing forth their own questions of their physical images and others. Viewers will have an opportunity to become participants in the art by taking their own nude photo and adding it to a portion of the installation.
How we perceive others and ourselves is so interesting. I believe Art can provide us with insight into these matters. Acceptability of physical image has always had tight constraints. I wish to explore this and hopefully, come to some beautiful conclusions. As well as instilling an awareness in nuanced beauty and absurd expectations.
Most of the 24 models have been photographed and ready to be recreated. All that is left is to get to work! I estimate It will take 10-12 months of rigorous painting in my little studio to complete these paintings and assemble an installation. Halfway through the completion of the project, I plan on securing several venues to display the art installation. It would be amazing to tour with this installation and that is my ultimate goal! Bringing Self-awareness and body positivity to a beautiful and diverse population. to add text.
I am seeking $20,000.00 to help complete this project. The funds will be spent on materials and logistics. In the case of over-funding, I will pay myself a small sum. So that I might be able to focus 100% on the installation. Also, I will make a petite hand-held version of the installation that can be bought and hopefully assist me in making a living wage.
Materials $15,300: 24 24x24 Panels, 72 36x36 Panels total $8075 Paint and varnish $750 Brushes $150 Fabrication $3,175 Photo-Booth $3,000, Reserve $150
Travel $3,000.00: There are a slew of logistics to move and set up such a large installation this is a low ball estimate which I won't be surprised if I go over
Honorarium $12,000: For myself that I will only get if I go over my $20,000.00 goal and equals about 1,000.00 a month for the term of the project.
Perk Cost $1,500.00: Essentially the cost to produce the perks minus my time.
Petite Installations $5,000
