Sae and I made these two collages simultaneously, sitting across from each other.
While we always do everything exactly opposite there is also always a connecting feeling.
In the blue collage the figure or being is looking directly at you the viewer, there is a relationship
between you and the creature. In the cactus collage the two figures are looking at each other,
we are witness to them and we can see that the feeling is gentle and direct. The expression of
the figures of both collages have a very similar quality.
It seems that it is easy to see the obvious differences in the works, the colour pallet, the subject,
the composition, all conspire to convince us of their incompatibility. It is fun to contemplate the
pieces to find what is shared, hence the title 'The looking between One and the Other' .
