Collaborative

Working collaboratively with another artist multiplies all of the possibilities! My friend, P. K. Williams, and I have been collaborating on paintings for several months. We were intrigued by the idea...and have continued to be intrigued every time we paint together or pair pieces we created while apart.

Here is an excerpt from our statement for an exhibition (One + One = One) we did together: 

The premise for this show is unique and exciting! We decided to work separately, each creating our own paintings; once that step is completed, we bring our individual pieces together and look for those speaking the same language, in other words creating a conversation. We JOIN the pieces to make a SINGLE piece of art. One plus one does equal one. We don't look at each other's paintings beforehand. It is a complete surprise. The days we get together to pair our work is like Christmas morning to a small child—exhilarating and we can't wait to see what is "under the tree!"
