DUAL DUEL _ an international exhibition of collaborative works

Anno Domini // the second coming of Art & Design is proud to present:

The dualistic nature of being is something we are born into. From the moment we are delivered in to this material world we struggle to see ourselves as anything but separate from all that we perceive. So if conflict is inherent in the act of comparison, how does one look out at the world and find harmony? Is it even necessary? It’s something our artists, philosophers, authors and poets have contemplated through the ages.

DUAL DUEL is an amazing group show of over 20 artists that were asked to pick an artist of their choosing to collaborate (or combat) with on a work of art. Some artists chose someone dear to them, while others chose an artist they always admired but had never met. And in some cases, the lead artist worked with someone they respect, but never seem to agree with. The exhibit is a palpable swirl of creative forces emitting the true nature of harmony and opposing forces.

Participating artists: Ken Davis x Ellen Murphy (US), Tomas Ives x Alejandro Mono González (Chile), Leon Ka x Socatoba (Spain), Klone x Assi Meshullam (Israel), Denis Korkh x Zero Cents (US / Israel), Travis Lawrence x Drew Roulette (US), Joseph Loughborough x Mark McClure (UK), ManOne x Victor Sepulveda (US), Pablo Martîn x Florencia Fernandez Frank (Argentina), Yasushi Matsui x Kelly Tunstall (US), Poesia x Sam Rodriguez (US), Jhovany Rodriguez x Dario Cruz (US), Satterugly x Play is Soul Food (Mexico), William Schaff x Mike Egan (US), Kevin Earl Taylor x Gianluca Franzese (US), Jessie Rose Vala x Kelie Bowman (US), Jake Watling x Mahtab Watling (US), Derek Weisberg x Shaun Roberts (US), Ian Wilkinson x Dale vN Marshall (UK), Yoshi47 x Ferris Plock (Japan / US), Zero Cents x Qingru Hu (Israel / China), and Zezao x Zeh Palito (Brazil)

Tiempo (Time)
collage, acrylic on paper, 16.5" x 58"
$550./ set of 5

Inspiration for their Dual Duel
Pablo invited Florencia Fernandez Frank to work together in this project. They share their life and have a daughter called Elena. They have worked together on several projects such as group exhibitions, books and murals (although it has been a while since they've last collaborated on a project).

Pablo started by painting some of his archetypal figures (that refers to monuments, obelisks, and menhirs). Then Flor decided to give birth to the spirits and energy that lived in this mythical spaces. They placed each sheet of paper as in a path and let the collage weave the monolithic figures. As in a connection to the roots that provides the energy for every grow.

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
I have worked several times with LeonKa in the support of the wall, but this is the first time that we have collaborated in paper format. I like to work with him, because I like his work, for his philosophical depth and his refined aesthetics, we bond quite well. And one very important thing for me is to work with an artist with whom I have a great connection, and with him I have it. I think we have created some beautiful pieces together. ~Socatoba

Dual Duel _ Joseph Loughborough x Mark McClure


Joseph Loughborough x Mark McClure (UK)
Not the Only Ones at the Party
charcoal, pastel and spraypaint on paper, 59" x 59"
$4000./diptych

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
This diptych was an investigation of the diagonal and the balance between two different visual languages occuping the same space. It was also a fantastic reason to have a few drinks and studio sessions with a mate discussing various artistic philosophies and compositianal differences between our works. ~Joseph Loughborough

The works explore the theme of “Duel” in every way from the diptych nature of the piece - through to the opposing visual styles both competing and complementing at the same time. It was an exploration of opposites.. the clean edges of my geometry complementing Joe's looser, rougher charcoal marks. My composition and graphic based motifs contrasting with Joe’s figurative awesomeness. The process made both of us challenge ourselves and each other - and raised interesting thoughts about the way we work.. plus it was the perfect excuse to hang out and have a beer. ~Mark McClure

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
This summer (February in the south hemisphere) they spent a couple of weeks in a beautiful seaside in Uruguay. Just in front of their house a wild forest (Monte/mountain) grew.

Ian Wilkinson x Dale vN Marshall (UK)
Emotional Cascade
oil paint, spray paint, oil pastels, varnish, 47.25" x 47.25"
$5100.

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
When asked to participate I thought "yea!", get Dale and let’s do it. The construction was easy to begin with, I did the preliminary work waiting for Dale to fly in from Ireland. Dale flew in and immediately got stuck in as he should. But, painting is a normally a solitary thing for me and it was initially like I was being blitzed, what was running the right course suddenly veered off in a crazy direction. Had to take stock, look inside and say to myself... "this is a duel!" And looking back, it was but one that has left a strong impression, would I do it again? Don’t know! But glad I did it with Dale; top geezer and great artist. ~Ian Wilkinson

Dual Duel Jhovany R. De Ala x Dario Cruz


Jhovany R. De Ala x Dario Cruz (US)
Oax X Cali
mixed media, photography, stencil on aluminum, 24" x 36"
$1500.

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
This piece is a result of two different artists making a claim on their roots and traditions. Dario Cruz, a self-taught photographer and son of Oaxacan immigrants born in San Jose, CA, and  Jhovany R. De Ala, a self-taught graphic artist and immigrant from Oaxaca residing in San Francisco, CA.

Although one artist was born and raised in Mexico and the other in the United States, both purposefully use their art as a way to reconnect with their Oaxacan culture and history. Grounded in this common thread, they harmoniously approached Dual Duel using different techniques of photography on metal (Cruz) and stenciling (De Ala), and found a balance in their different lived experiences and similarities in artistic processes.

The stencil created by Jhovany is an image Dario’s niece, when visiting the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca, Mexico. She represents the humility and values that come with being raised in a culture that values community and family before the individual self. The background is a monastery in Oaxaca City, where life moves faster and Dario’s niece, although so close has never been and hopes to see one day. ~Jhovany R. De Ala

Dual Duel Jessie Rose Vala x Kelie Bowman


Jessie Rose Vala x Kelie Bowman (US)
Goddess Talk
Episode 4 The Sustenance of Food 5:32
Episode 5 Melody and Serenity Talk to Nebula 5:23
Video, 2018
Light Hits aka Kelie Bowman and Jessie Rose Vala


Goddess Talk is a collaboration between artists Kelie Bowman and Jessie Rose Vala.
This project begin as an exploration into humor, improvisation, failure, low-fi special effects, and new age philosophy. We aim for Goddess Talk to occupy the space between a public access television show and a really fun acid trip. Goddess Talk is modeled after a late night public access show, with hosts Melody, played by Jessie Rose Vala and Serenity, played by Kelie Bowman. Goddess Talk attempts to create humorous yet earnest explorations of New Age approaches to self-improvement. Through these explorations, the Goddesses often fail, delving into the idea of failure, sitting in the awkward moments of it. The tongue and cheek comedy, is often tested through physical acts, a push-up that is not able to be completed or a re-enactment of the eclipse by the two goddesses rolling over each other on the floor. Each episode shifts from a set of decorative, homeopathic, and art objects to majestic natural landscapes. Goddess Talk exhibits a finely-honed lo-fi aesthetic, featuring dated text and motion graphics, colorful glitches and a cast of flying animals and pop tarts. Goddess Talk offers a critical exploration of the commercialism of wellness therapies and theories, important to consider in our age of quick-fixes and online searches.

Going beyond the humorous, this project pursues the artists’ attempts to find our own methods of freeing ourselves from contemporary oppressive forces. We see Melody and Serenity search for connection and healing through a montage of scenes displaying the frenetic pace of our minds and culture.

Feast
acrylic on canvas, 30" x 48"
$5000.

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
"I woke up early and hung over. The previous night, I picked up Zero Cents from SJC and we were up late talking about his time in Peru. We talked about ancient humanoids and megalithic architecture. But today we would talk exclusively through painting.  We exchanged a few remarks about the orientation of the canvas and spent the day in silence painting simultaneously.  Since we don’t have bodies when paint - we wouldn’t collide and were able to work the whole of the canvas at the same time.  We were one author and this crazy narrative emerged.  For the next few days we would alternate.  No spot was sacred - everything was subject to constant and fast change.  I can’t imagine having been closer to Zero Cents than this time together.  He is an artist I admire so very much and this was an absolutely paragon event in my work.  What you see in “Feast” is our conversation.

Dual Duel Derek Weisberg x Shaun Roberts


Derek Weisberg x Shaun Roberts (US)
Conversatin 5.
mixed media on archival pigment print, 36" x 24" each panel
$3500./each panel

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
"In 1976, painter Arnulf Rainer created a series of works which were responses to Franz Xavier Messerschmidt’s sculptures. Rainer called them “Conversations” with Messerschmidt. Conversatin’ V is the fifth iteration of an ongoing series of collaborations and is an homage to Rainer and Messerschmidt.

"Several years ago Brett Amory, Shaun Roberts and myself worked on the first iteration of the Conversatin’ series.  It was a way for the three of us, all ready close friends, to combine our talents and modes of working and to put a lot of our conversations about art and making into practice.  With that work our shared ideas and passions could be put into a realized form. So this is the continuation of that series. Collaboration is something both myself and Shaun have been interested in for a long time, and frequently practice. We both feel it is one of the special aspects of art making; the sharing of ideas with people who are having similar conversations in their work is a beautiful thing.  

"Collaborations can be an incredibly scary but also an extremely rewarding way to work. One has to give up control, be willing to compromise, have trust, be willing to share and can’t be offended if their work is changed or altered. But if you have trust and believe in the work of the artist you are collaborating with, beautiful unexpected decisions and results can be achieved. In part that is why it’s called Conversatin’; conversations take 2 people, it can’t just be one voice talking. Each artist has to contribute, share their ideas and have their voice heard for the piece to really work.

"This is a particularly special collaboration because it includes Shaun’s photography, he is one of the best photographers out there, his vision, his compositions, the ambiance he achieves, his ability to capture deep humanity in his images, are all special. Secondly, I am mostly a sculptor, so my approach to drawings, painting and 2D space will be different.  Also this will be one of the few times I have offered any 2D work to the public." ~Derek Weisberg

"For myself, I was excited for the opportunity to change up our collaborative dynamic. It was thrilling but also somewhat intimidating transitioning from my usual role as Documenter / Observer / Witness, to being an active participant directly making the work alongside Derek. We were at the point of our friendship and working relationship where I had grown accustomed / comfortable with how we made work: Derek would invite me over to his studio to see his latest creations, we'd discuss his ideas and how they've evolved since the last time we met and I would point my lens at his studio, his life, his work, and weave a story via the images I captured. The terminus of that process—like the majority of my photography & video work—ends up digitally: as a blog post, a studio visit slideshow, on Instagram, on a gallery website. The images, merely a representation of a fleeting moment in time and space, have no lasting medium to affix it to the physical world. Knowing that my images, delivered as pixels, as photons emitted from a screen, constantly burning out of existence at 60 cycles per second, at a scale no larger than the palm of my hand was sometimes frustrating. Certainly there was the occasional image that would make it to print—maybe a magazine, or a limited edition run—but that somehow never satisfied the desire produce work that wasn't part of an edition, wasn't a multiple of thousands, or didn't evaporate out of existence once the plug was pulled. 

"For Dual Duel, Derek suggested a new type of collaboration—a new type of 'conversation'—that challenged us to engage in a much more direct fashion. This process encouraged us to translate the mediums with which we worked into another in hopes of discovering a new, unfamiliar visual language for us both. Derek's porcelain sculpture was formed, fired, and translated into a one-of-a-kind large scale photo-diptych that became the foundation for an intensive call-and-response mark-making process between us. Using pastels, oil markers, and graphite directly on to a medium that buckled, warped, pushed back—on a scale beyond portable—helped me materialize the ephemeral nature of photography into a more concrete, emotionally engaging end result. 

'Celebrated photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson was known to say, "To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart." Derek inviting me to Dual Duel presented an incredibly refreshing opportunity to invite the hand into Cartier-Bresson's sacred equation of image-making, helping me transform a formerly rote process into something liberating." ~Shaun Roberts

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
"The works I did with Klone is actually the first time I've artistically cooperated with someone. The connection between us was fascinating and we both really enjoyed "interrupting" each other's work. I knew Klone from the works he was doing in the streets (his main work is street art), and I really connected with them. I think that each of us brought his language into this visual dialogue, and the process was fascinating." ~Assi Meshullam

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
"When the opportunity came up to do a piece with elements of Mike Egan's work in it, I was thrilled. As a fan of his work, I was so very pleased to get to incorporate his world into mine, having them both exist together as one piece. Taking two dolls that he makes, I introduced them to my character, Willy the Jack Ass. The three –even with their best intentions– realize their struggles against the ills of the world are having little to no effect. That as they act, Rome is burning. So they have headed off to look for their fiddles.
    That all said, Mr. Egan had no clue as to what I was planning to do with his wonderful creatures. He was just kind enough of trust me and let me run with it. He is that good a guy!" ~William Schaff

"Travis and I discussed the moments where our unfamiliar memories dance around our minds like the spiral of gold and periodically remind us of the divine nothing. As our physical bodies move forward towards finite, our minds circle our perception, only to joust back in when we are destined." ~Drew Roulette

Dual Duel Satterugly x Play is Soul Food

Satterugly x Play is Soul Food (Mexico)

Inspiration for their Dual Duel:
The connection to develop this work has been a process in which we have been working as a duo artist since 2015 under the name of UGLY FOOD.

"What motivates me the most about the collaboration is the way in which Play is soul food uses recycled materials and reminds me of the importance of playing with materials, like a child who prefers the toy box than the toy itself."

"It is a very free process, but also like a puzzle. The recycled materials is part of our daily journey. When consuming products from our local stores, we instantly see that the packaging is inviting because they already tell a story. The element of recycling creates more journeys within the layers, like the walls in the streets." ~Satterugly

UglyFood was created in London in 2014 by artists Satterugly (Mexico) & Play Is Soul Food (United Kingdom).

They disigned the UglyFood Project as a platform to créate collaborative works of art that express a raw honesty about contemporary culture and social issues. Thier first collection of works was exhibited at Nomad Art Compound, Los Angeles,California in 2015. After some time in the U.S, UglyFood moved to Guadalajara, Mexico, where they now have based their art & design studio, and printmaking workshop; UglyFood House.
