THE MOON & THE SLEDGEHAMMER - Northern Print, Newcastle, UK, July 15th - September 2nd 2017.
The Moon & The Sledgehammer suite of 15 prints will be exhibited for the first time in the UK at Northern Print in Newcastle during July & August.
'The Moon & The Sledgehammer is a collaborative print dialogue between artists Guillaume Brisson-Darveau and Lucy May Schofield. It is a visual and emotional correspondence between them as artists. This conversation is motivated by the desire to know more about one another and feeds from the experience of the present. From these playful exchanges a new vocabulary arises, specific to the meeting of two universe conversing to create one. This dialogue implies a particular attention to the others' sensibility whilst inviting them to redefine their own.
The fifteen 'phases' of prints explore the idea of what collaboration means to them as artists and how two languages (silkscreen & mokuhanga / French & English) form a bridge between our independent practices, as well as challenging our perceptions of their limitations.'
