This collaborative work is unique in both the process and the pairing. We create a synthesis of imagery in paint, sharing a propensity towards certain colors and nonobjective imagery. Our process is complementary and creates a stimulating dialogue.
We became intrigued with the idea of painting pieces independently and then bringing the work together to find paintings that could be paired—an experiment.
We work separately in our own studios, each creating paintings on the same size canvases without conversation or reference. Then we bring the paintings together, looking for those speaking the same language, in other words creating a conversation. We physically JOIN the pieces to make a SINGLE piece of art.
Our interest is in stimulating a conversation with viewers that echoes the conversation between our paintings: independent viewpoints that when married together, create a new, whole idea. There's a surprise in what each "player," whether human or on canvas, brings to the dialogue.
