While Denise's inspiration comes from the pain of having to say goodbye to people and places she knows she may never see again, Ross's comes from those 'in-between' places, what lies between the highlights and the shadows (the mid-tones?), that time-space continuum between the conscious and unconscious mind.
Watch the episode and see if you can relate to any of our inspiration sources. If yours is different, let us know in the comments!!! Join us every Thursday at 3:30PM EST and follow our epic art journey as we send 13 physical panels around the world to create 13 collaborative paintings together. What is Palimpsest? ‘Something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form.’ A little background info: While the pandemic raged, 7 artists from 4 different countries formed a special virtual friendship and decided to embark on an epic art journey together. By sending physical panels around the world, we will create a series of original artworks, with each artist adding a layer in their own distinct medium and style. This will result in 85 layers divided between 13 paintings. We started our test run in December and we would like to invite you to join us every Thursday at 3:30PM EST for a weekly live event where we will share our stories and experiences while we create this epic project together. What to expect? In-depth artist interviews, live unboxings, live Q&A’s, studio tours, guest interviewers and speakers, lively discussions and all the ups and downs we face along the way!
