Created in collaboration by Larissa Maxwell and Jace Kim as part of the East Meets West Show November 18-20th, 2016. Larissa and Jace both painted on all three pieces in their signature abstract and figurative styles using a variety of acrylic and oil mediums. These pieces evolved over a 6 part process of painting on each other’s work to create a cohesive triptych embodying the theme of the show and the personal journeys of both artists, and the ways they intersect and find commonality.
Larissa and Jace utilized their respective abstract and figurative styles and a variety of acrylic mediums and techniques to tell the story of collaboration. The word consanguine speaks to two languages working together in relational harmony towards a common theme of living in two realities. This piece is about the challenge and beauty of two artists, speaking two different artistic languages, finding a common ground and place of harmony based on shared experience.
