People don’t always communicate with words. Sometimes our body language and facial expressions inform others of our internal dialogue or intentions. Even what we once thought was a hidden feeling could be carefully and thoughtfully put into visual terms. Have you ever noticed what longing looks like? How about mischievous intent? Can you tell when someone is listening to or telling a funny story?
It can be as simple as how one uses his or her hands to speak or how expressive one’s face is while recounting an event.
For this art exhibition, we’re asking the artist to go beyond the obvious and bring us a meaningful observation and unique interpretation of the vast amount of facial and gestural communication there is. We’re looking for artwork that focuses on how we communicate with our hands (and body to a certain extent) and with our facial expressions.
All international artists, professional and amateur and all art mediums will be considered in this call for entries from photography to wall sculpture, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc. Work must be able to be hung on a wall to be considered. Artwork up to 12 feet are acceptable. Video submissions will be displayed online only.
Deadline: June 17, 2013
