“Shifting Perspectives on Trauma” Art Exhibition

Artistic field:

Eligibility:

ABOUT THE PERCEPTION PROJECT

The Perception Project is a Los Angeles based art-for-healing non-profit organization devoted to providing survivors of trauma (muses) with services that take on creative forms as expressive outlets and serve the local community. Between an artist/survivor collaboration, the muse provides a personal story, and the artist creates a masterpiece showcasing the muse's strength and inner beauty. These works are showcased through public art exhibitions designed to promote mental-health awareness, then gifted to the muses as a symbol of their strength. 

 

DESCRIPTION

About the Project:

The volunteer artist will

a) Receive a written or audio story based upon the experiences of a trauma survivor (muse)

OR

b) Meet a trauma survivor (muse) in person or via Skype, to listen to the muse’s experiences with the presence of a therapist or mental health professional

and use it as inspiration to create an artwork meant to empower and inject positivity to the muse. Artwork is donated to the muse after the end of the exhibition. Acceptable mediums are canvas, wood panels, paper, digital prints, mixed media, 2D visual art, small-sized sculpture/3D art, and photography. A gift card or an art supplies goodie bag will be allocated to each artist (or artist team) to cover partial cost of materials. Artist travel fees are not covered.

Art Goals:

Works of art are created then gifted to the muses (survivors) as a symbol of their internal strength to continue thriving in life. The Perception Project devotes its creative platform towards promoting mental health awareness, maximizing community partnerships, local community involvement, providing meaningful work experience, and above all encouraging a shift towards positive perspective.

Site:

The art exhibition will be held at a private gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The event will be open to the public.

 

ELIGIBILITY

All artists who are passionate about making a positive difference in the community are encouraged to apply. Application eligibility is not restricted to geographic location.

Juror:

David Potthast is an artist, designer, and educator; he observes & documents such things. He is a sculptor studied in design & computer science. He received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and an MA and MFA from Fontbonne University. He has shown locally the past few years, but has works in private collections both nationally and internationally.

 

His approach to art and design is aligned with the tenets of the Bauhaus. Mainly that work can be both intellectually controlled and emotionally expressive. His works turn the digital languages and logic in visual pattern, often reacting to materials, but always steeped in concept. Whether entertaining chaos theory, game theory, time, or even ideas from his own or other’s fictional worlds, he seeks to find meaning in the existence and persistence of objects and experiences. His works even go so far as to inhabit far ancient worlds, yet appear as functional or ritualistic devices. He creates his own fictional companies as identity studies, too; going so far as to build and publish websites for them.

 

He often works under the name dpstudiolab as an expression of his work being a bit of art and a bit of experiment. This includes documenting his works in ways that align with experimental research and study.  His works don’t just explore digital existence, but also reaction to materials such as steel, concrete, plaster, glass, found objects. The boundary between the virtual and the actual is blurred for him, but he explores both realms.

 

In the end: David Potthast/dpstudiolab makes things he sees in his imagination, even it requires stretching the laws of time and space to make it in what passes for reality these days.
