Biography

We formed an artistic partnership in 2009 as Gordon and Mary. Before this we painted and exhibited individually. Our work together uses a variety of different mediums including paint, print, video and sculpture. The work is based on aspects of our individual lives and has a starting point through the exploration of drawing. Layering and texturing is prominent in our work through the use of collage like creating a story. These pieces examine and respond to the subject of human identity through conditions of emotion, belief and environment.
