I will be participating in «Art Project My Gaia / Mom» organized by Ina DAO.
In December of 2021 we created INA DAO that specifically supports; persons who identify as female, their goals and creative projects; regardless of origin, skin color or location. Our goal is to provide help to female artists and projects, through onboarding, funding and connecting with other like minded womxn. We already have 34 members in our group and have come up with a multi-disciplinary art project to introduce our DAO to the crypto world!
*We are organizing an art project tentatively called “My Gaia/Mom”. This project will bring together womxn from all over, to create pieces of art that speak of our mother’s, one half of where we came from. The art created can be in any form, be it visual, music, written, physical or digital, as long as it’s mintable.
The goal is not only to bring together the womxn of our group and learn about each other through the story of our mothers, but any other womxn out there that would like to share. We plan to mint these pieces on Mintbase and have a virtual gallery opening/party to present these pieces. The royalties & revenue will be split 25% with the DAO & 75% with the artist.*
The idea of the mother seemed very interesting to me and obviously I joined because making art is what I love to do the most in the world.
About the work: The relationship with my mother is very complex and has its comings and goings that are beside the point, so I focused on answering the following question: what was the most visible and intense characteristic that represented and marked my mother? – and as a consequence that marked me too – that very likely my other sisters would not take into account or choose something very different -. So what came to mind was this: black sheep.
In those days I was doing digital painting very enthusiastically so I had no doubt that I would do a digital painting. I have worked many days on this work and I had to decide to finish it because the deadline was approaching.
This work in high quality is available Here
Digital art / Painting
All the works will be exhibited in different virtual galleries. Here one of them:
