Following meeting in New York in the fall of 2010 and finding a synergy in our approach to image-making, we embarked upon a couple of initial collaborative exchanges, which quickly developed into the makings of an exciting and eclectic body of work. Most of the works presented here were created and shared using only the iPad as a drawing and painting tool. Recent pieces have developed in three dimensions as small ‘soft sculptures’and the latest round of work has seen the development of a series of paintings on cardboard, which have been shared by post. Each of the works has travelled an average of 40,000 miles during its creation, bouncing back and forth via email or through the international postal system as its individual narrative unfolds.
collaborations have helped both of us develop and extend our image
making practice and have pushed our personal work into new and
interesting directions. The narratives which develop throughout the
process of making the works are playful, intriguing and entertaining.
Many of them are hidden by the process of making, whilst others peek
through to reveal themselves in colourful and often humorous ways. The
result is an ongoing dialogue of signs, symbols, image-making and
colour, a series of ‘Woven Narratives’, which engage the viewer in a
‘mesh’ of images and marks which share collective stories and
