Writing

We would like to introduce ourselves Pamela Holmes and Patrick Gourley are presently collaborating by tying themselves together to paint. The confluence of creativity exists in collaboration outside the confines of habits, ideologies, preferences, deliberations, dictates, or rules. The artist most often works alone, we are embarked upon creating a collaboration that removes each of us and allows our shared consciousness to find a place of creative abandonment leaving the structures of self-imposed isolation. I am not, Pamela is not, therefore we are.

At first appears it would be easy to achieve some equilibrium but the need to be either passive or dominant reaches the middle which is not compromise but is a psychic battle of sorts, between each other and the painting. At some point the need to focus on the act of painting becomes overriding and so in this way the two merge and inhabit this new entity. We hope our method and work intrigues you.

The elements of human design interact with and depend upon the natural world, with broad and diverse implications at every scale. Expand design considerations for recognizing even…
