Neuro Blooms Opening Reception

Wednesday, February 12, 5-7PM in the STAMP Gallery

Join the STAMP Gallery for the Opening Reception of Neuro Blooms, a collection of artist Leslie Holt's "Brain Stain" works. This series exploits the aesthetic qualities of PET brain scans of people experiencing mental health conditions. Holt combines solid areas of stitched embroidery thread with saturated acrylic paint stains. The Brain Stains combine objective data with a more poetic interpretation as a reflection of both corporeal and clinical experiences of mental illness. These works engage viewers with the science and lived experience of mental illness, but also with the hopes of creating conversation around and destigmatizing mental illness. Enjoy refreshments as well as a talk from the artist at 6PM.

Neuro Blooms: Mixed Media Art by Leslie Holt at the Stamp Gallery

posted on January 29, 2020

THE STAMP GALLERY PRESENTS 

Neuro Blooms: Mixed Media Art by Leslie Holt

February 12 - March 28, 2020

 

Opening Reception 

Wednesday, February 12, 2020, 5:00PM – 7:00PM 

with a talk from the artist at 6 p.m.

Free and Open to the Public

Leslie Holt, Schizophrenia Stain, Acrylic and embroidery on canvas

 

This spring the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland, College Park, presents Neuro Blooms: Mixed Media Art by Leslie Holt.

 

Leslie Holt’s “Brain Stain” series exploits the aesthetic qualities of PET brain scans of people experiencing mental health conditions. Holt combines solid areas of stitched embroidery thread with saturated acrylic paint stains. The translation of digital imagery into the handmade is a metaphor for the integration of scientific data with more nuanced and subjective experience. The Brain Stains combine objective data with a more poetic interpretation as a reflection of both corporeal and clinical experiences of mental illness. These works engage viewers with the science and lived experience of mental illness, but also with the hopes of creating conversation around and destigmatizing mental illness.

 

This exhibition will include mental health resources, reflection activities, and crafts and programs to engage with the exhibition. There will also be a pop-up library, created in collaboration with the Art Library at UMCP, for visitors to further explore topics around the science of brain imaging and art engaging with topics of mental illness. Visit the Stamp Gallery’s website and social media for a up-to-date schedule of events.
