IQF, Houston, TX: Work must be available to travel from August 2016 to December 2019.
Turmoil is defined as a state of great disturbance, confusion or uncertainty. It can be personal and internal, societal or natural.
Personal turmoil can refer to the turmoil in one’s mind, such as stress, sadness, bitterness or anger. Personal turmoil can also include the chaos of an over-scheduled life, the cacophony of the city, or the frustration of daily demands. Societal turmoil encompasses the disempowerment of people through war, unrest or racism.
Turmoil in the natural world can refer to disasters, such as earthquakes, fires, floods, violent weather, global warming, or the destruction of the environment.
This exhibit will feature work that depicts chaos, discord, imbalance and tumult. Artists are requested to explore the meaning of turmoil in their own lives. The works selected will represent turmoil through color, line, and composition. Both abstract and representational styles of work are being sought.
Deadline: February 29, 2016
