Call for Female Models: eVULVAing Project

Call for Female Models: eVULVAing Project

This Deadline Expired: Monday, December 31, 2018

The eVULVAing Project was created by Philadelphia-based artist, Kristin Kozlowski, to promote awareness and equality towards women and their bodies to educate all and to empower women everywhere. By painting a wide range of vulva portraits, Kozlowski aims to show the differences in all women, the beauty and the complexity of each individual, from all ages, all backgrounds, and all walks of life.Do you know girls as young as nine are ashamed of their labias and are receiving labiaplasty surgery?

Did you know young women are being genitally mutilated everyday to deny sexual pleasure and show fidelity to a future husband? Or that one fifth of men and women asked globally believe women are inferior to men?

I began this project in response to the mechanical and detached delivery of my first child and my determination to instill intimacy with my second. The first birthing experience seemed to be guided towards the convenience of my doctor rather than my own. Through research, I realized this was a common occurrence and other women felt this way too, which made me question practices that dismiss this precious moments between the mother and child. Why are women so easily influenced by the guise of authority? Why do we allow people to take something beautiful away from us?

Through abstract geometric paintings, Philadelphia artist Melinda Steffy translates music into color patterns, exploring ideas of translation, information and data, and how music weaves throughout human experience. Melinda Steffy’s RUINATION DAY series (acrylic on wood panel) deconstructs folk and blues songs that reference the date April 14, which is when Lincoln was shot, the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the Black Sunday dust storm devastated the Midwest. Melinda Steffy’s BACH PROJECT series (watercolor on paper) converts classical music by J.S. Bach and Bela Bartok into grids and pie charts. Rather than hear one note after the other through time, the paintings show all of the notes and rhythms simultaneously on one visual plane.

 My paintings frequently lead me through mysterious places that hint of dreams, memories, landscapes, or the dense rhythms of music.  Bold colors and free  gestures can produce  serene minimal paintings suggesting alternative universes or ways of thinking.
