Out of Sight/In the Mind
Bonnie Sucec and Susan Beck play a game of telephone with their collaborative artworks. One artist will work on a piece in their studio, verbally describe it to the other via a single phone conversation, then the other uses the verbal description to create their own artwork. The conversation results in a map onto which the artist layers and integrates their personal practice. This exercise is not meant to create two duplicate drawings but to push each artist to greater personal fluidity within a very complex visual arena. The result is a meditation on communication, partnership, and artistic voice.
