how we work
Our working method is discontinuous.
We make paper objects such as the objects in the shots below and at the bottom of the page. They are rarely made to be a part of a specific work. See Making Inventory for more.
It's as if we make the objects and hand them over to another couple who will use them almost like found objects and put them together with other elements, paper or otherwise. If an object doesn’t work well with others, it becomes a stand alone piece or it is put in the ‘recall to life’ pile and reworked.
Damn old work and storage units!
Artworks made up of these objects are thus created, exhibited or at least documented. Then, they're disbanded and the parts recycled into new work. If the need arises and the parts are not elsewhere in use, we'll recreate a work. The veronese green and ochre piece in the work nearby is pretty popular. See other works that it is a part of, below.
The veronese cotton and ochre abaca object is shown in several works. We’ve made several of these cotton and abaca things. We call them puffers and Making Inventory will show you how they’re made.
More examples of our inventory of abaca and cotton fiber pieces along with a few non-paper elements:
