A Slight Diversion
The artists are Annette Simpson and Jack Randell.
It was pretty amazing and as you know me really well you will understand how I made
a connection to it being similar to John Lennon meeting Yoko Ono that first time at her exhibition.
This photo is of a large collaborative piece entitled New Tracks
"To start with I create an image in outline, break it down into a grid of small tiles, I give each invited participant a tile to render in colour, tone or texture. My collaborators are working blind to the extent that each person knows only the pattern of the lines in their portion.
My interest is in the coincidences occurring in the creative act when conducted in the company of agreeable others."
During the opening tonight and for the rest of the show at the
Salerno Gallery, 70 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, NSW 2037 till the 23 September,
you are invited to paint an mdf tile, being a drawn, numbered small portion of the final image.
Paint the tile in whichever manner you please. The artists will mount the tiles during the exhibition as they are completed.
It was such a different concept and and something I'd never seen before.
I encourage you to attend if your in Sydney
