Artistic Collaborations

It's not every day that artists meet other artists who are interested in so many of the same things, and even have an appreciation for one another's aesthetic.

I have known Tokyo-based Colombian artist Klaus Fruchtnis for many years, but it is just recently that we discovered our similar interests in using photography as a way to capture urban spaces, in particular public ones. We also seem to always end up in language-based exercises.

We first collaborated on the Thing-a-Day blog run by some great people over at Eyebeam, and most recently decided to continue these ideas in a project we are calling Cross Urban.

I also recently met Brooklyn-based artist Annie Leist, (we were in a group show together at Broadway Gallery) and when I read her artist statement, I had to make sure I was not reading my own. I'm sure we'll find a way to work together as well - something I look forward to!
