Hand To Hand
David Wallace and Rebecca Trawick
A Coast to Coast Collaborative Collage Project
by Two Artists Who Never Met Each Other.
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 13, 2007, 7:00 -
Meet the artists as They Meet Each Other.
"There are 'hints' of eroticism.
Since it's vintage collage, there are many images comprised of vintage
nudes and pin up girls, and certainly the one piece entitled "Know
the Truth" is a teaser! (It features a male sailor's face with
a pin up girl's body.)"
Rebecca Trawick lives in L.A. and David Wallace
lives in Pittsburgh. The two artists, who have never met each other,
have completed nearly fifty collages using the U.S. Postal Service
to send work back and forth until both decided a piece was finished.
phd gallery will hang thirty of their finest works, flanked by thumbnail
photos taken by the artists which show the stages of progression.
Meet the artists at the opening night reception as they meet each
other for the first time.
The series debuted in Pittsburgh in January of 2007. Janera Soloman,
visual arts critic for The Pittsburgh City Paper had this to say:
"This beautiful collection of collages holds no specific thematic
intentions; there are no hidden messages to interpret. Each piece
offers its own vocabulary, images for which viewers can create their
own meanings. Or one can simply appreciate the image for its aesthetic
value as a beautiful work of art."
These artists are examples of intuition and assurance at its finest.
They concede control over creative outcome and secure in the process
a dynamic and spontaneous artform that is process directed and not
fully under their rein.
