Studio Series: Ohne Titel 2

Ohne Titel 2 by Karen Thiessen © 2011
Ohne Titel 2 (which means Untitled 2 when translated from German to English) was part of the Painters and Potters show at the Carnegie Gallery in 2009. Jody Joseph invited several artists to participate and each one of us was to select a partner to collaborate with. Since I fell under the "painter" category, it was up to me to invite a potter. Two years earlier, I was part of the Out of the Past... Into the Future show and Tara Lynne Franco's work was hung right next to mine. Our work looked great together, so naturally when Jody asked me, I immediately thought of Tara Lynne. The panels are painted, collaged, stitched and include my textiles and Tara Lynne's ceramics.
