My project’s objective is to develop a series of visual pieces that are entirely based in positive psychology and neuroscience research findings, that can improve mood and quality of life. Based on empirical, scholarly data, I have created oil paintings and illustrations that can visually improve human brain chemistry. I have been awarded grants from the Canadian Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Society to pursue this project and I’ve been devouring scientific texts about mental resiliency since September.
This series of pieces act as Personal Protective Visuals (PPV) to keep us visually and mentally safe, not unlike the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that has been keeping us alive these last 18 months. This project will eventually be moving to murals in public spaces, once locations have been secured. If there are public spaces that are interested, or would like to be considered, they could reach out through my website: www.amberozolsart.com
