Parallels and Tangents – Tina LaMour and O. Gustavo Plascencia Aug 2011
Traditionally the collaborative process is in the production of new work. However, we have approached this show as a form of collaboration after the fact. Through our interactions we have realized the similarities in the content of our individual work. Despite our disparate backgrounds, common threads are evident as we both approach the representation of the content using different methods. Through the parallels we have discovered the tangents in our individual visual languages. Despite the differences of where the work is coming from it embodies common threads in the references to family, faith, solitude and loss.
