Two-Step/Big 4 was produced during a five-day residency at Scottish Opera Production Workshop. These canvases are the largest works produced to date within the collaboration. Exhibiting them in The Studio at Beacon Arts Centre, a black space ordinarily used for performance, allows the work to be suspended, granting the viewer access from multiple directions and polarising the traditional white cube gallery set-up. This is a series of 4 works which can be loaned individually or collectively.
The two Glasgow based visual artists were drawn to one another’s work when they met and noticed their shared aesthetic and process. Two-Step involves a range of activities committed to the traditions of drawing, printmaking and painting. The similarity of the pair’s separate outputs, and the velocity of their relationship, generates a trust in each other that allows both voices to be present and equal at every stage of the process.
