Inspired by the artwork of Jennifer Bartlett from the book of her work titled In The Garden, Tina and Laura saw the possibilities of having two artists work on one piece of art together. Since they live far apart, they had to brainstorm a method of how to make this work long distance. What Laura and Tina decided was to each begin on a wood panel, working on about half of it. Once completed, they swap artwork through the mail. When received they complete the piece of art.
The artwork created is open and subject to the individual artist creating it- Tina and Laura do not have any parameters or objectives- only to create in the moment and see what develops between two artists. This is an experiment which will be documented thoroughly on the blog.
This project is an extension and expansion on their Collaborative Book Exchange that was completed in 2010 as well as the ongoing Vision/ReVision project.
