Artistsmeet (at Watersmeet), High Street, Rickmansworth, WD3 1EH
Tuesday 10 July – Wednesday 29 August 2018
Monday - Friday 10am – 4pm
Finding Chapters is an exploration of human connection between the two artists, who have similar approaches to their practice. For the first time, they have come together to show their work, exploring these similarities and also differences.
As part of the exhibition, Jo and Anji have also created a collaborative piece of artwork utilising Instagram as a point of contact, sharing and publishing. They are exploring how to utilise this chosen platform, to develop a dialogue that encourages deeper reflection, real-time and emphatic interaction.
Each day the artists take it in turn to create work on the same image the artist has posted the day before. Their response encompasses their emotional state at the time of creation; this a key element in both artists approach. This work grows over this time, evidence of marks made, feelings felt and time available. It is a challenge of trust, honour, empathy and relinquishing control.
Cllr Chris Lloyd, Lead Member for Leisure said: "I am looking forward to the launch event and meeting both artists. I hope many people will take the opportunity of dropping in Watersmeet while the exhibition is on."
