About this project

My name is J. Scott Nicol. I am a professional artist asking for your help to showcase my latest work on an international stage in NYC. Art Expo has become the ultimate venue for independent artists to be discovered, not only by gallery owners, art publishers, and museum curators, but by collectors and enthusiasts in search of exciting new works. My new series is unique and fresh. By using the 3D glasses to view the work, the viewer gets to experience original oil paintings like never before. These paintings incorporate pop culture images in a unique way that combine the realism of a photograph and the excitement of Pop Art.

The painting’s format has three components. First the white text on a red box is the front plane. It is similar to the magazine style of branding the name. The text does not suggest a title, but a word to elicit personal interpretive relationship with the viewer. The subject is split into two remaining components; the realistic portion of the photo cropped in the foreground, over the seemingly silk screened image of the same photo in the background.  When you put on the 3D glasses the planes of the painting become apparent and the image separates. What was the silk screened part of the image becomes black and white and recedes into the background. When the viewer moves from left to right, the background moves also. The text box and cropped photograph remain static in the foreground.

 I am very excited about my new series and felt this was the perfect way to launch it. As a fine artist who has exhibited in galleries around the country and purchased by collectors all over the world, I feel that Art Expo will be exciting, interactive, and a chance for me to have a personal relationship with a variety of art collectors, museum curators and enthusiasts. I am proud of this new series and feel it has the potential to exceed the success of my previous works.

Risks and challenges

I will have completed 12 original “Pop 3D” paintings by Art Expo April 2014. Since this is a unique and new way to view art, the challenge is to bring as many art professionals and enthusiast as possible to view the art with 3D glasses. Once the viewer puts on the 3D glasses they will have an interactive experience with an oil painting that hasn't been done before.
In addition to the investment in the creation of the art, the booth at Art Expo will cost $5,200. A Half page ad in the Show Guide will cost $750, which is distributed to over 20,000 attendees including 4,000 trade buyers. A half page ad in Art Business News will cost $795; this trade magazine has a subscription list of 8,500 Art Professionals, Galleries and Art Collectors with 7,000 Art Business News followers on Facebook and Twitter. The cost to produce the rewards involved is approximately $3,000.
I am passionate about this project and I am asking you to help me raise $9,000. If fully funded, together we can get close to 35,000 people to view, interact and appreciate my new Pop 3D series. If we exceed the donation level, I will put the additional money into more advertising, promotion and 3D glasses.
Thank you in advance for all your help and support.
