|Detail from GAGGLE of TONGUES|
Charles and I got started with a spray paint and acrylic background before the real visual fiesta began. Often with art, the fun is in the journey. We had no idea what we were painting today until the brushes hit the board. We sent Jesse home with this maniacal collaboration, which he'll be showing to his students at APSU. He's been talking to them about the creative process and getting them relaxed to make art for the sake of making art. Our Sunday backyard painting sessions are just that- brainstorms, anarchy and all out channeling of the creative spirit. When one of us would ask, "What's the story here?" There'd be some smirking and chuckling as if we're all three tuned to this inside joke. I'd be interested to hear what the class has to say.
I recently made another collaborative painting with these two cohorts in art crimes called CROP CIRCLES (click HERE for more!)
