Tina~ This is my very first photoshop merge! Aren’t you proud of me?!? The staircase image was taken in Aruba and reminded me of our journey together, wondering where it will take us. It was interesting to think about Andy Warhol’s “Factory” that you mentioned. I have always wanted to be a part of something greater than myself and appreciate  how we share our “everyday, ordinary moments.”

Dear Laura,  The image you sent me of the cool drinks on a summer day reminded me of something that may have intrigued Andy Warhol.  I created this piece in Photoshop thinking of Warhol’s imagery.  While he used the ordinary supermarket as inspiration to comment on the age of consumerism, we are doing something similar in our art practices by finding inspiration in ordinary personal moments of our days.   He is one I feel informs both our work.  I also wanted to mention his collaboration with many other people in what he called “the factory” where people (of all walks of life, not just artists) would come together in his New York studio to create sculptures, paintings, silkscreens, and films.  I also just learned about Andy Warhol’s close collaborator and dear friend Gerard Malanga who created many projects together.  Our collaboration here is following a long historical line of artist partnerships and I feel honored to be part of this history.      Tina
