 Of Land and Sea: Recent collaborative paintings by Peter Wray and Judy Collins

31st August 2019 - 28th September 2019
Private View: Friday 30th August, 17:30 – 19:30

For this exhibition at the Penwith Gallery, we have decided to return to a more semi-figurative approach to our image-making and our interpretation of subject matter, in order to enable, between the two of us, a more effective dialogue in our search for the ‘essence’ of a particular idea. We hope that this will also enable the viewer to approach the work in a more open and reflective manner, appreciating and enjoying the diversity of interpretation offered by the images they are contemplating.’ Peter Wray & Judy Collins

Wray & Collins have exhibited widely throughout the country, and their collaborative work is in private and corporate collections, both in the UK and abroad.

Despite coming together from different artistic backgrounds, Wray and Collins have a response to materials, art process and landscape that is very close. Nowhere is this more apparent than in their collaborative paintings, enabling their individual practices to move toward a meeting point and a natural progression towards a collective expression of individual, though shared, experience.

They describe the unusual practice of two artists working collaboratively on one painting as a 'dialogue'. Starting points and ideas are discussed, each beginning with an idea and exploring it until the other takes over the idea and expands it. This is repeated as an ongoing discourse until an agreed conclusion is reached whereby the resulting image takes on its own 'voice'.
