Hinterland Gallery is pleased to announce its new exhibition “LOVE and FEAR” by Dutch-born artist Jolanda Aucott.
Jolanda Aucott is the artistic force behind the World Wide Art Project; an exciting and ambitious project that explores the following questions:
- What can we achieve when we collaborate together?
- Do our backgrounds affect the way we experience human emotions or are we united by a common experience, a oneness?
- Does our education, faith, nationality or gender change our views?
The project deals with the association of core human emotions through artistic expression. The themes attached to the works – “LOVE” and “FEAR” – will show the power and beauty of a combined creation and the effect the theme has on the end result. Is it what one would expect or is it a complete surprise?
Within a template, contributors were invited to create a work of art that they associated most with the theme. These works became one of 80 pieces in total which when brought together form a single image of a face.
There were no restrictions on how to approach the image and contributors were able to use any medium including oil, acrylic, ink etc. They were able to glue things on it, write words, make a tapestry or embroid the material.
