A call for your help
    #3707231 - 01/31/05 01:32 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hello all, its been quite a while since I've said hello to the community, so hello. I have checked the boards daily, but have been quite submersed in my work lately. Now I need your help my friends...

I am currently working on my senior show for art school. As many of you may know I'm a slave to my paintbrushes and its time again for me to immerse myself in my work. After much deliberation I've decided on a direction for my show.

skip to the bottom if you wish, the important bit is at the bottom.

Once again I will be focusing on portraiture in oils. Of course I will be using my hallmark vivid color schemes. I am trying to combat the traditional view of portraiture as a somewhat low art form. Historically portrait painters were nowhere near as popular as painters that took on great historical or religious works. I am trying to redefine the way portraiture is looked at in the art world.

This means several things. First I take away the model all together. I solely work from photographs, this way I separate myself from the subject all together. Next I use computer aid to manipulate lighting and color, giving myself a solid core to start from, as well as adding an element of mixed media (which will manifest itself more greatly with time).

Now I want to take it a step further and this is where your help comes in. I have been painting friends and people I've photographed over the years, but I've always had some first hand contact with them. This is what I want to change. I want to completely separate myself from the people I paint.

My current idea revolves around the ideas of people in forums like ours here at the Shroomery. We spend so much time talking to, usually, nameless faceless people. So my virtual friends I need your mug shots. I am looking for fairly high resolution shots of faces, I don't need bodies, but I can get rid of them myself if need be. The bigger the better, cause I can get much more detail in from hi res pics, but whatever you got will do. I need normal faces, crazy faces, sad, happy, and vulgar faces. Old, young, all faces. All information about you is unnecessary, except your screen name, as that will be the title of the works.

I will be posting paintings up as I complete them so you all will have a chance to see what your involved in. I am really looking forward to this project and I think it may even get me into the gallery world, which would be my dream come true.

Send lots of pics of yourself to
virtualstranger@comcast.net


If you have any questions or concerns about my project you may send me an email to this same address

If a mod would like to sticky this, it would be sweet, as this is an ongoing project. Thank you guys and i hope to see you all on my canvass soon. Oh yeah, TODCASIL I better get some from you, ya big ham :smile:

The link in my signature shows some examples of my works and should give you some idea of what the finished works will look like :thumbup:

Wish I had a few pics to send.

Haven't crossed your path in a while. Glad to hear you're doing well. Good luck with your project!

Wazup Meatspace! Yeah I've been mostly lurking lately. You can always take some photos in the near future, my project will be running for quite a while. My show goes up next fall, but I gonna be painting my ass off. Im trying to get at least twenty of these suckers done by then, hopefully a lot more. Depends on what kind of response I get. Hope it goes well.

Those pictures of your bro are awesome, if you got some more like that, they would be good candidates :wink:

mwahahaha Dr. Beejay at your service. Thanks Hendo you rock brother. Good to see you too man.

To everyone else...
if your not going to send pictures, please respond to this thread as to why your not sending pics. That way I can change my methods and try to get everyone on board. Thanks

Oh yeah and tell your friends, anyone on other boards, tell the world. Please blow my email box up with pictures. It will help sooooo much.

I can probably get a high resolution pic of my face for you within a week, as long as the painting would be all that is displayed publically. Sounds like a cool project

Thanks organic, that would be great!

yeah Im only putting up paintings and screen names up. There will be no info on where I got the images other than they are from internet message boards and forums. No specifics about the actual sites or anything related to drugs or whatever. My goal is to keep everyones identity a mistery as that is the focus of the project.

The response is looking good already, I cant wait to see my mail box getting plump on the faces of the unknown :smile:

If you can, take the 2 in my sig. That would be awesome. Visit his website http://www.antaphi.com for some more pics. You can use them for your artwork. In return, maybe you could sign his guest book, and take a listen to his tunes. Spread the word if you like 'em!

sweet deal. You sell your work? I'll buy one of my Bro, if you end up doing a good one. That will make a nice b-day present.

yep, I certainly do sell work. The only problem is shipping rates can be outrageous. I will post the works as they are completed or just once in a while as updates to the work, so if your interested in something you see, let me know and we will work out something reasonable.

hehe frogot you live close by... I could drop it off :smile:

I could pick it up..

We are getting together soon, our mushrooms are recently cased, and fruiting should be soon. They will be a tasty treat.
