"The Creative process is all about allowing yourself to play. By playing and laughing great ideas can come to the fore, they can develop un-inhibited."
Heather Wallace and Rebecca Barnard have worked in neighbouring studios for almost five years. Through their continuing conversations about art, the artists who inspire them and their individual working practises, they have inspired and influenced each other in many ways.
INSIDE OUT is the culmination of two artists’ journey through an unfathomable period in all our lifetimes. It is an unashamed homage to the joy of sharing the creative process, as well as unwittingly becoming an unconscious record of negotiation, their humour, of testing and respecting their creative boundaries.
Rebecca and Heather both come from figurative backgrounds. This period of creativity has taken them both in different directions. Yet the process forming works together came instinctively and with intuitive harmony. During this process, they have broadly left behind the figurative detail of their previous individual works, and come together to develop an exciting and colourful visual dialogue.
