ART EXHIBITION AT The Art Garage
Creative Mirror provides outlines of an object, split in half on two separate canvases. The current object is a Flag.
The chosen artist will need to have an immediate family member happy to complete one of the halves. But there is an interesting catch.
To maximise creativity, the two candidates are briefed that the object is from a parallel universe where anything is possible.
They are not allowed to view the other half until it is completed by their family member and vice-versa. Then for the magical moment they both line up.
To create an exhibition like nothing ever seen before. To captivate members of the public and the art community alike, engaging them on visual and thoughtprovoking levels.
The contrast between pairs will be a key component of the art and research.
We will question participants on what they think and how they feel about creativity. Then use the answers for research and to enhance the exhibition.
We hope to use the research along with our expertise, to motivate and educate others on how to embrace their creativity (not limited to art). We hope to inspire people to unlock the door to a world of their own creativity.
ARE YOU AN ARTIST? Do you like to draw/paint?
If yes then awesome! Glad you made it to this point in CREATIVE MIRROR!
We only have two requirements before you proceed with the application
You are happy to answer our research questions around creativity
You have a mother, father, daughter, son, sister or brother that will be keen on being included in this art experiment
This is a great opportunity for you and your chosen family member to come together through art. The end results are magical, regardless of skill involved
The experience has made me feel a part of something special and helped me bond with my mother and show her why I love to paint.
Rae who has little creative experience, took on the challenge with might delight. She used her mathematical brain and worked with geometric shapes.
When asked by my daughter to Create the other side of the Creative Mirror painting, I found the concept very intriguing, interesting and challenging The idea of 2 members of the same family attempting to create their own personal version of the same Art work yet mirrored brings out a different type of creativity.
This is the first time I’ve participate in such a unique exhibition experience. Having to incorporate a couch into the artwork challenged me as I am generally more comfortable with abstract forms. In the end, I really enjoyed pushing myself to make it work and am happy with the results.
