John, Michi and I are working. The “Tenchu” painting is in john’s hands now, Michi has “The chicken lamp” and I am working on “skull 5”.
I would like you to understand how this process works. You may find it hard at first, but the short answer is we paint over and on each others work. This is something requiring a great deal of trust. Our process is as much a collaboration as it is a critic on the work itself a commentary that carries with it a wet brush. So the painting passes from artist to artist each editing, celebrating, embellishing, and reinventing what was there before. The painting becomes something else.
In April 2008 Art Murmur, Los Angeles was pleased to present “COAST TO COAST BUTTER TOAST”. A show featuring new collaborative work by John Tindel, Michi and Alex Feliciano. The visual mash-up was a lively celebration bursting with texture and quick witted humor. And we are doing it again, With all new work, this time in Atlanta!! at Art Department Galleries.
