I am looking for a student to work with me in creating colorable images for a coloring book for Seniors using mythic images and symbols.  We will be using images from my iPhone, digital camera, and film photographs.  I do not know if PhotoShop would be the best program, whether it has a “rotoscope-like” capability, so that only the outline and major details remain for coloring.  Excessive detail will be eliminated for enhancing the coloring experience.  Each of the 15 images (Honeybee, Cosmic Egg, Moon, Threshold, Flood, Garden, Labyrinth, Butterfly etc.) has been given a two-page mythic background text.  My doctorate is in Mythology, with a Depth Psychology Emphasis (and the coloring book has a psychological theme of self-discovery) and I also have a Masters in Fine Arts, Cinematic Arts Production (USC), and so the images are dramatic and relevant.

I am done with most of the writing and am ready to start now in having the images readied for the coloring book.  I have quite a number of local senior communities ready to have me host senior’s activities, as I test the writing and mythic art.

Compensation will be based on experience, and after we have talked.

Seeking an Illustrator

I am looking for an illustrator for a short story and wonder if you may
      >      know a student who would be interested.  The story is set in the Isle of
      >      Lewis (in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland) and in Arbroath (a small town
      >      on the east coast of Scotland) in about 1955.  While the illustrations
      >      need to be historically accurate, it is not the task of the illustrator
      >      to do the background research necessary to make them so.  I will do that
      >      and supply the required information.  Eight or nine illustrations are
      >      required and all but one of them will be of people.  The facial
      >      expressions and the interactions among the people are of primary
      >      importance. The size will be close to 6 inches by 8 inches (portrait
      >      mode). The commission is for private use (friends and family) and no
      >      publication of the illustrations is planned.  The budget is in the range
      >      $1,000 to $1,300.

I would like to invite you and your colleagues at the U of O art department to my film screening, here’s the link to purchase tickets:

Crystals of Transformation is an environmental art film inspired by water researcher, Masaru Emoto’s discovery of the influence of energy on water’s molecular structure.

I created a sculptural and elaborate costume inspired by Dr. Emoto’s photographs of water crystals,

Jovencio de la Paz Fall 2017 Exhibition

“Broken Symmetry” 
Marylhurst Art Gym
October 1, 2017 – December 13, 2017

For the exhibition “Broken Symmetry,” Jovencio de la Paz has included three new weavings representing forthcoming bodies of work. Woven on a TC2 Digital Jacquard Loom, “Harmony of the Spheres” is the first of a series of textiles derived from Science-Fiction novels, essays, and fabulations. Looking to the works of Ursula K. LeGuin, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury, and Frank Herbert, these realized,  imaginary textiles are future ancients, specters of speculative events. “The girl told the story cried,”  is an analysis of human/machine miscommunication. Perfect circles drawn in the space of the digital become irregular, contorted, and stretched ellipses: material distortions of ideal forms captured in thread on the digital loom. The sentence, “The girl told the story cried” is a classic example of a Garden Path sentence: a grammatically correct sentence that is difficult to parse because of syntactical aberrations speckled throughout the English language. Such sentences are Victorian brain teasers, whose meanings are often poetic reflections on the human condition. However, they are also used in Turning tests to evaluate the competence of Artificial Intelligence.

“MoreLand” 
Simone DeSousa Gallery 
October 21, 2017 – December 31, 2017

For the exhibition “MoreLand,” organized by Sarah  Turner and Iris Eichenberg, Jovencio de la Paz has produced an edition of blankets responding to the exhibition’s theme, focused on hardware stores. Modeled after repeating stacks and organized piles of materials like dry-wall, plywood, and other flat-goods, the overshot patterns in these blankets are designs generated by simple mathematical accretion and jostling.

“Brand New Rug” 
Ditch Projects
October 14, 2017 – November 11, 2017

Evoking notions of Colorfield painting, Op Art, Colonial textiles, and DIY culture, “Brand New Rug” is comprised of two large scale weaving installations. While two brightly colored rag rugs span the entire gallery floor, an accumulation of overshot textiles precariously leans against the wall. The works consider the uncertain status of cloth, often occupying a contested and fluid space between utility, artifact, image, structure, crafted thing, and carrier of history.

Video Art and Animation in the Shadow of the Solar Eclipse

Organized by artist Rick Silva, Eclipsecore, an evening of video art and animation made in response to the total solar eclipse, will debut in LA on August 17.

Next Monday, a total solar eclipse will cast a dark shadow over a thin strip of land from coast to coast, the first time that phenomenon has been visible throughout the contiguous US in almost a century. Inspired by this event, artist Rick Silva, in conjunction with experimental video platform Ghosting TV and creative agency WOAH, has organized Eclipsecore, an evening of video art and animation produced in response to the eclipse.

The screening features work by 24 artists, from Andrew Benson‘s trippy, digital abstractions, to Light Hits‘s low-fi, new-age talk show. Preceding the films, there will be a panel discussion with Silva, Benson, WOAH curator Sharsten Plenge, and Sasha Samochina and Marike Jorritsma of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory; the group will talk about the connections between science and art. Following the LA event, which takes place on August 17, Eclipsecore will travel to Salem, Oregon, where it will be screened in the eclipse path on August 20, and then will be available online after August 21. The LA event is free, but donations are requested.

When: Thursday, August 17, 7pm–midnight (RSVP here)
Where: Navel.la (1611 S. Hope St., Downtown, Los Angeles)

Opportunity to become a part of an anime studio

Are you an aspiring animator looking for a place to start your resume? How
about an opportunity to become a part of an anime studio being built from the
ground up?
The Broken Windmill Studio is currently working on an anime based off the
producer’s own DND campaign. Right now all the music is almost done. And the
Story for the first two season are done. The first season is in the works
with full 22 minute episodes with about 13-20 episodes per season. We have
musicians, writers, and artists hard at work but we need more people.
Our main character artist is mainly tasked with drawing the main player
character designs. The roles for artists that need to be filled are:
Landscape, Creatures and Background people.
Our animators are also very few, a plethora of roles are open. What we’re
looking for here are people who can work with Open Toonz animator or MIA. We
have Open Toonz as a first option because it’s free to use in case you the
skill but not the money for the program.
The projected amount of time for us to get the first episode out is at least
next year. When I comes to pay, I can’t guarantee a steady pay or even pay at
all but our plans consist of making our early access debuts available on
first Patreon and from there we’ll see what happens. This is mainly a place
for you animators and artists to get yourselves out there. Expand your resume
and perhaps your notoriety in media with your work.

Artist and photographer to know: Farhad Bahram

https://iranwire.com/en/features/4653

As an artist and photographer, Farhad Bahram is interested in challenges: What does it mean to be from a particular place, from a particular background?  What do labels mean, and what happens if we ignore them, or tear them down? What does it mean to be a performer, and a member of an audience or an observer? What if the line between them is blurred?

This approach to his work was shaped by a number of factors: Bahram’s childhood in Iran, his move to the United States, and his experiences as an immigrant, and before that, as a photojournalist.

“After my camera equipment was confiscated by the cops in the street, I started to realize that my camera is not only a professional device for the documentation of people’s life,” he says of this evolution. Suddenly, he says, he saw that a camera “could be a simple tool for initiating an active dialogue among people.” In 2009, Bahram covered the unrest following the disputed presidential election. It led him to set up the collaborative group the Global Mission of Art (GMOA) later the same year. Promoting “a free platform for creative communication and cultural activities,” more than 30 artists around the world ran exhibitions, published books, and organized conferences and training workshops. “Most importantly, we decided to allocate all the funds raised through these events to non-profit organizations and humanitarian movements such as the society for supporting children suffering from cancer (Mahak) and UNICEF. For our most recent project, we worked with The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).”

Before coming to the US at the age of 29, Bahram worked as a photojournalist for two magazines and Hamshahri Newspaper. He traveled around Iran, including to the provinces of Sistan and Baluchistan in the southeast, Khuzestan in the southwest and Mazandaran near the Caspian Sea in the north, among others, documenting diversity and the lives of people around the country. This experience led him to think about tools of communication, and how people respond when they are limited or threatened. “As we know, a totalitarian state always tries to subjugate its people by controlling various aspects of their life including social communication. However, this limitation showed me how I could go beyond the traditional ways of communication such as language.” In Iran, he recognized, anybody with what he calls a “fluid social identity” can be at risk because they do not conform to the fixed rules of that society. So it was natural at this time that he began to see the value of looking at his creative practice through a social lens, and to consider how public interaction and participation can feed into art. Some of his public performances, such as One Minute Engagement with an Iranian (2015-2016) and Re-identification (2014), are the products of those revelations and considerations.Pushing back on these norms and trying to carve out a space for individuality and creativity is, Bahram says, “the story of any active artist in Iran.”

Bahram left Iran in 2011 to pursue a graduate degree in art at San Francisco Art Institute. Prior to this, he received a Bachelor’s degree in mining and rock engineering from the Azad University of Southern Tehran in 2007 and served his mandatory army service. After completing a graduate degree in Fine Arts at the University of Oregon, he completed a Graduate Certificate in New Media and Culture, also at the University Oregon. He was awarded the OUS-Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (Sylff) graduate fellowship for International Research in 2013, which recognizes individuals from a range of disciplines whose work focuses on overcoming “cultural boundaries to address global issues.” He was also given the Carlene Ho Award for Excellence in the Arts in 2013. Since 2015 has been teaching at the University of Oregon’s College of Art and Design. He lives in Eugene with his wife Pooyesh, a therapist.

His work has been exhibited internationally in more than 30 shows and exhibitions, including at galleries in Brooklyn, Paris, San Francisco and other cities in California, across Oregon, and in Finland and India. He has had two exhibitions in Tehran, at Fravahr Art Gallery and the Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art.

 

Balancing Acts 

Like many Iranian-Americans who have emigrated to the US over the last two decades, Bahram’s childhood memories are shaped by the horrors of the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988). But he has fond memories of family life, especially of his grandfather, a professor of theology and philosophy of religion. “His charismatic character was always the source of inspiration for the whole family,” he says. His family still live in Tehran, where his mother is a housewife and his father, a traditional businessman with a good education, works alongside Behram’s younger brother at Tehran’s Grand Bazaar.

Bahram hasn’t been back to Iran since he left, but his work continues to be shaped by Iran, and by what he calls its deep-rooted “social mistrust.” Culturally, he says, Iranians tend to conceal “their daily life, including their wealth or possessions — and even their thoughts and emotions — from the political state.” And it’s not only about the current regime. It goes back to a history of “authoritarian crowns and turbans,” and is undoubtedly embedded in the Persian language.

But this doesn’t mean that people are silent. Iranian citizens — and artists and journalists in particular — have to find ways to say what they want to say without getting into trouble. And Bahram believes the Persian language, which is “full of idioms and metaphors that serve as an envelope to wrap the intentions and implications of our daily interactions,” has evolved to deal with this balancing act of concealment and expression.

And even as these restrictions seem to dominate Iranian expression, they have also done something quite unexpected: They have preserved a set of “unique social interactions,” a set of characteristics that set Iranian people apart. This, he says, is of enormous value to journalists and anyone trying to document the lives of Iranians. “If you want to make a genuine story about people, you must learn how to engage them in a context that give you access to the preserved stories of their life.”

So, for him, what’s it like to be an Iranian-American today? Bahram says his Looking Glass installation, part of Eugene’s Platform Festival, is a partial attempt to answer this.

He and artist Tom Lundberg asked 15 Iranians living in Eugene to send them a list of words in Persian that represent their individual identity. They then printed the words on black vinyl and pasted them on the ground at the entrance of the exhibition space. During the two-hour show, the 15 participants (including Bahram) positioned themselves inside the displayed text and didn’t move. People attending the exhibition were immediately confronted with a series of questions and considerations about national, ethnic, sexual, and religious identities and what it means to belong. “The audience who wanted to enter the space had to find their way in by passing through this space/text populated by the Iranians,” Bahram says.

“To me, an artist is not only a creative creator but also a facilitator or curator that invites the audience into the process of constructing the art piece,” he says. “In this context, the viewer and their interactions may actually become the artwork itself. This is the most exciting part of art practice for me.”

Hua Tunan – World Famous Chinese Street Artist – Eugene, Oregon

World Famous Street Artist Comes to Eugene
One of the most sought-after Chinese street artists is working in Eugene this week as part of the 20×21 EUG Mural Project. Hua Tunan was born in 1991 in Foshan, Guangdong province. His street art style combines traditional Chinese art with Western graffiti through the use of action and splatter painting to create bold compositions of animals. Images of Hua’s past work can be seen at http://huatunan.tumblr.com/.
Hua’s Eugene mural is made possible in part by partnership with Vistra at 411 West 4th Avenue, Eugene, where he is painting the exterior wall through June 23rd. Hua’s piece will be the fourth mural in the 20x21EUG Mural Project. 20×21 is an initiative of the City of Eugene’s Public Art Program to create 20 world-class murals in our community by 2021.
Also, this summer from July 29 – August 4, seven international and local street artists will create mural magic in the city during Eugene Walls.
