Face 2: CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork, Ireland

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is FACE, and self feels like the luckiest person in the world because, this morning, in one of her periodic rambles around Cork, she stumbled into a gallery on Wandesford Quay. In a smaller gallery off the main exhibit space (looked like a crypt) were a set of prints:

When she went closer, she saw the subjects were actually portraits of a human subject:

The exhibit You Make Mine, I Make Yours is a very interesting project. Four printmakers from Cork were paired with another four from Rafamo, Finland.

The pairs sent each other visual prompts, and it was up to the individual artists to come up with original interpretations.

One of the artists, Johnny Bugler, explained how the collaborations worked. He has his own artwork in the show: Dream of a White Dog, and Paradise Lost (which features a screen print of tropical palm trees on found leather)

Actually, self participated in a similar collaboration when The Asian American Literary Review invited writers like herself to react/respond to a visual artist. In April 2012 we were brought to the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC to share the fruit of our collaboration. The event was Asian American Portraits of Encounter Between Image and Word. The other participating writers were: Marie Myung-Ok Lee, Garrett Hongo, David Henry Hwang, Kazim Ali, and Anna Kazumi-Stahl.

You Make Mine, I Make Yours runs through May 29.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
