ARTISTS’ STATEMENT

 01/2015

 

Collaboration (whether being two or more) has been our theme since meeting at sea thirty years ago.

 

History gave us the American genre of printmaking:

The White Line Print.

 

Books as objects offer dimension, structure and transportability to our images.

 

Art as a way of life brought us to Cape Cod, then Maine and Provence. Our inspiration stems from these habitats while our friends and families anchor us.

 

Ars longa, vita brevis
