Healing Illustrations Series Public Art Project by COS

The following paragraph is a short summary of my public art project, Healing Illustrations that Fresh Arts (www.fresharts.org) is supporting through their cultural fiscal sponsorship program. Healing Illustrations Series by Christine Olga Smith https://www.behance.net/gallery/35585343/Healing-Illustrations-Series This draft series of illustrations depicts women, children and families mainly in the Middle East, but also the Mediterranean. The illustrations are centered around women who are recovering from illness and are meant to console and empathize through imagery of traditional scenarios and subjects, and final works are intended to be a series of hand-printed silkscreen posters, each piece being 1 m x 80 cm. Through International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC.org) part of the sales of final works will go to the refugee crisis and relief in Greece, Syria and Lebanon. To donate towards this project through Fresh Arts please visit my project page, https://www.fresharts.org/sponsorship/funded/project/healing-illustrations-series-0 All proceeds from sales of my Angel backpack, iPad and iPhone cases on Society 6 also go towards my Healing Illustrations Series project. https://society6.com/product/christmas-angels-light-blue_backpack?curator=christineosmithhttps://www.fresharts.org/sponsorship/funded/project/healing-illustrations-series-0

Post-Studio Residency, Houston, Texas 2016

Sea Turtle Animation  

My project is about the sea, because this is where I spend a lot of time and get inspired. Some areas in Greece are protected breeding grounds for the Loggerhead Sea Turtle or Caretta Caretta, and my animation is about the moment when the turtles hatch on the beach. I would like to share the hatching process of these endangered species with my friends and colleagues, which happens only at specific seasons and beaches; and consequently hope that everyone will, “like, share and follow,” this project on social media.

    “My Sun II,” Blanket Throw

    MY Sun II Blanket

    MY Sun II Blanket

    The concept behind the design of My Sun II, alludes to the idea that we are all people living under one sun. The concept behind this blanket is a representation of my own cultural heritage with incorporated Greek, Islamic and French elements; it also is directly related to the concept of heat, as the idea is to create a small blanket or a throw. The design itself is linked to the masculine and feminine qualities of each person or two people united, either through love and/or mixing of cultures. The fabric dimensions are: 160 cm x 130 cm Fabric: wool and silk Colors: warm and cool such as light blue silk and natural dyed wool backing; ranges from light to dark shades, or inverted

    10% of proceeds go to refugee relief through the Greek Orthodox Church.

    Περιγραφή “Ο Ήλιος Μου ΙΙ” To ριχτάρι " Ο Ήλιος μου ΙΙ ", αναφέρεται στην ιδέα ότι είμαστε όλοι άνθρωποι που ζούμε κάτω από έναν ήλιο. Αντιπροσωπεύει την πραγματικότητα της δικής μου οικογενειακής σύνθεσης που είναι επηρεασμένη από Ελληνικά - Χριστιανικά, Αραβικά - Ισλαμικά και Γαλλικά στοιχεία. Συνδέεται επίσης άμεσα με την έννοια της θερμότητας καθώς ετσι δημιούργησα αυτη την μικρή κουβέρτα ή ριχτάρι. Το ίδιο σχέδιο συνδέεται με τις θηλυκές και αρσενικές ιδιότητες του κάθε ανθρώπου ή δύο ανθρώπων ενωμένων, είτε μέσω της Αγάπης και / ή της ανάμιξης των πολιτισμών. Οι διαστάσεις του υφάσματος είναι 160 cm x 130 cm Υφάσματα μαλλί και μετάξι Χρώματα ζεστά και ψυχρά, όπως το γαλάζιο μετάξι και φυσικό βαμβάκι ή μαλλί, κυμαίνεται από ανοικτές έως σκούρες αποχρώσεις ή από σκούρες σε ανοικτές. Το 10% των εσόδων παραχωρείται στους πρόσφυγες μέσω της Ελληνικής Ορθόδοξης Εκκλησίας.
