50 over 50

 I need your assistance please.  If you are over 50 and haven’t had cosmetic surgery or botox or any kind of fillers, please send me a large, high resolution photo of your face,  just a clear head shot please. Obviously you would need to be happy for it to be used in an exhibition at Brighton University next year. It could also be posted on my website if you were happy with that too.
  
What’s in it for you, you might ask.  Well, you would be part of a gratifying project which celebrates ageing rather than trying to erase it. You would also be part of a slowly growing backlash against the invisibility of us older women.
And, of course you would also receive an invitation to the private view in July 2014!

Have a look at my website for more details here:

and thanks!

primalconcept:

Marlene Dumas is a South African artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Her art has been acknowledged globally and shown in exhibitions at some of the worlds most renowned galleries such as the MOMA in New York.

Dumas draws much influence from photographs/portraits and draws her subject material from a never ending archive of personal snapshots, polaroid shots and images torn from magazines and newspaper articles. Her paintings are never a literal explanation of a portrait, she takes inspiration from a certain technique or aspect in a source and applies it to her pieces. e.g, she may crop an original image, focusing on the colour scheme of a persons facial features and use only that segment of the source in her art.
