Painted with Megan Chapman
My collaboration with US artist Megan Chapman began in 2011. We worked on two collaborative series, standing side by side at one easel. There are true collaborative pieces, creating a fusion of both our styles and visions.
This series reflects both our search for home and the distance that separated us. In these paintings, we attempted to reconcile not only our different backgrounds but also our individual voices in their search. The cool colours of Scotland are balanced by the warmer ones of Arkansas. Graphite lines reflect the geology of both regions, as well as the trajectory of planes slicing through space and hint at the sense of being pulled in two different directions.
