Steve Gildea’s paintings are part space journey, part whimsical dream. Just the kind of thing I need today. And every day.
Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power. I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:
People don’t realise there’s a cost incurred that allows for all the years that artist worked on their skills to improve, that compensated for the times they had to work two or more shitty jobs just to cover the most basic bills, that acknowledges that what they do represents a unique point of view and displays their own personal style. Art is more than the sum of its materials, and so is an artist. When you try to talk an artist down in price, you’re being insulting.This^^^
this is fucking spot on!
Handmade is awesome!
Pierce: I have sent in a donation for him, and as much as we’d love to fund an event to gather more donations for him, we simply don’t have the time to because of all the delays and unfortunate events that occurred in January.
Still, we encourage people to donate and spread the word and support, as there are some rotten people out there who still think it’s okay to bully this boy even in his current condition.
