Ron Herrema PRO 10 years ago
a great idea and admirably realized - certainly an inspiration for those of us who teach, as well as for anyone who makes art - I need more time to chew on it all, but in the first instance i find myself wondering about dialogues of ideas that end up having radically different appearances (maybe represented best here by dialogues 2 and 4) - perhaps a second installment?!

Fromage de Merde 10 years ago
Really great - a pairing of giant talent and beautiful imagery - the conceptual thread says it all......... . .
well adventurous who enjoyed such a good wave,
congratulations to the two, fantastic job!
outstanding you two ....such a brilliant exercise of creative expression...creative responses through visual expression...

the relationship of visual unity of thought and metaphor...

for me each separate image viewed as I scrolled down invoked a separate response but as the point or edge of union arrives the excitement and anticipation of what image was used to respond explodes in the mind and then gently the second image stands on its own and is immediately encapsulated with the memory of the first image...

quite a unique way of communication....very profound

thank you for inviting me to your exhibition I am very honoured...

Ansel Olson PRO 10 years ago
great collaboration you two have put forth here.

the formal ties between the pieces help them cohere well as pairs while allowing the rest of their qualities to dialogue. it creates an interesting viewing situation in which each image begins to project itself onto the other. e.g. if I see figurative forms in one, I begin to look for their companions in the twin, if I sense certain feelings from one, I begin to expect correspondence of some kind from the other.

just curious, have either of you read Geoff Dyer's "The Ongoing Moment"? he talks quite a bit about archetypes in photography--how one photographer will pick up a subject another one shot in a new way, and another photographer will follow that. these made me think of that occurrence.

Bill Horne 10 years ago
This is a lesson in synergy. They are beautiful pairings. Each one complements the other in some fundamental aspect of color, shape, line, form, or texture. I especially like "(O)000o" v. "the last hour of light" and "at that little place by the ocean" v. "hugging the side", because they also have very contrasting aspects. This collaboration you two have developed is really great.

Son como notas exquicitas, que sin sonido ni melodia, saben tocar lo mejor del alma y llegar hacer palpitar de emocion

Fabulosa forma de expresar donde el color, la luz, textura y forma hacen que la magia nazca

Felicidades Amigo Mio
linkwize Posted 10 years ago. Edited by linkwize (member) 10 years ago
A collaboration that is simultaneously sound and fanciful, astute and obtuse. Fantastic to see memes that infect and absolve each other's sensibility in such a creatively sustained display of duets.

Robert Brindley PRO 10 years ago
Art cannot live in isolation. It has to have reference, connection to something else,context. The viewer needs the code to see past the surface. Those codes are often provided in the body of work of the artist and are somewhat less provided by curators' often obscure monographs. They are often simply provided within the viewers own conceptions. This device that you have used, pairing images from seemingly disparate artistic approaches to the same thoughts, has been used with success by curators of the great galleries around the world and it is used with extraordinary clarity here. It is a pity, then, that we cannot see these hanging large on a gallery wall, because as thrilling as the work is( and I take nothing away from the artistic quality) virtual has nothing on real.
Congratulations to you both however. May we see much more.
nomade7 10 years ago
a dialogue and a "non-dialogue". the silence.
the last thing that remains in a relation when it finishes is a silence. a silence full of means. a presence-absence that is and "endbeginning" of all.
in this work I greatly enjoy this deep, often irreplaceable, often untenable,
sense of pure belonging. a perfect sequence of "endbeginning" fragments.
I would really like to be in front at this work with my curious eyes! compliments!

i love the collaboration of you guys! this is a very nice compilation, i enjoyed it very much!

my most favorite is (O)000o/the last hour of light. it is a stunning, mesmerizing play of light/shadows/reflections/blue-tones and the interplay of silence and chaos works perfectly here!

great work, congrats!!!

super jellyfish [deleted] Posted 10 years ago. Edited by super jellyfish (member) 10 years ago
Some I get, others not so much.

For me it has a working (read transient / transparent / malleable) title like Dichotomy / Lobotomy. Truly, mustn't we change what we initially desired when we redefine and re-describe our work in the context of another's? Suddenly your work is only as good as the image next to it (or in this case, above or below it).

Like I say, some I get, others not so much.
juditny PRO 10 years ago
simply no words... but try to...

outstanding idea, and the top level of the cooperation of your souls is just admirable.

I've tried to choose favourites, which is REALLY very difficult:

meanderings - floebee :: shadow dance - mark valentine have been already my favs,

but now lost soundwave - mark valentine :: claviature - floebee are added, too, since they are an excellent example how real and abstract art can be combined such a way that they can create a complex, elevated artistic pleasure.

thank you to both for the invitation :))

saintah 10 years ago
Thank you Floebee and Mark. Very intelligent opening sequence with the almost minimalist but stunning "blue three" and "ambigurizons." The sets of images complement and dance together. "At that little place by the ocean" seems to be out of context with the rest of your wonderful exhibition. Thank you again for the invitation. I look forward to viewing the work of both of you.

this collection is lovely, and me, ever the pragmatist, would love to know how it happened. Is it truly a silent dialogue, or do you discuss images? Or does one of you see an image, and think hey I have an image that would go great with that?
