Unlike the endeavors of theatre artists and musicians, visual artists are rarely known for working collaboratively. Luke Armstrong and Molly Nicklin break the mold with their “cooperative art” in which both artists play an important part in creation. For them, painting becomes an “unspoken connection”, a silent conversation on canvas between two artists – partners in vision and partners in life.
We did this painting in June 2016. It was the first painting done on our wall mounted easels at Cali Commons. As you can see in the video, we painted it one way, and ended up hanging it on the wall "upside down."
