Guerra de la Paz
How did the collaboration begin? We began working together the day we decided to share a studio. It was not our original intent but it just happened naturally and seemed to work. We were simultaneously drawn to the visual language of the neighborhood and felt the need to incorporate it into our own creative process. That forged a mutual dialogue that has grown over the years into an interwoven partnership.
What are you trying to tell your audience with your art?
We like to believe that the work speaks for itself. It often deals with the familiarity of a material or an image and can be ethereal, iconic, tactile and perceptual. Engaging awareness at various levels through a discourse of universal issues and personal recollections, always leaving it open to interpretation.
Seeing some friends and perhaps making new ones. Differences in the art world between Miami and New York?
New York is the archetype for culture - not doubt about that. There is more of everything – you can’t really compare them in that sense.
There is so much good stuff out there. Whatever serves our purpose at the time.
Plans for the future?
Yes…but not everything goes as planned. We will keep on doing what we do.
