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?

Elaine M. Erne, co-founder and co-director of Star Wheel Printers, received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Erne’s drawings and prints have been featured in numerous invitational and juried national exhibitions. The Lives and Traumas of Stuffed Animals is a series of comically disturbing depictions of Mr. Bunny and his friends under siege. The series is made up of very large graphite pencil drawings, woodblocks, etchings, and lithographs. Although there is a playful side, the underlining theme is fear, cruelty, and survival.  In recurring distressful situations people often become like dolls, presenting a steady happy personae no matter what is happening.  Though the circumstances represented in the work are not real, no stuffed animals were hurt in the making of the work, they capture the aura that surrounds a person who has no control but will not give in.
