Yaddo Collaborations, 2011

In the summer of 2011 Carrie Moyer and I were admitted to Yaddo as collaborators. Looking to find generative platforms for crossing our working processes, we chose two formats. During the course of the month-long residency we produced an open set of small paintings. In addition we sought out a “client” for a three-dimensional design project. Both projects were executed as call and response collaborations.

LITTLE Yaddo Paintings

Using an agreed upon set of fabrics and painting dimensions, this project began in Pepe’s studio. Each stretcher was modified by attaching materials/ objects mechanically, and then stretched with a fabric of choice from those pre-selected. The work was then passed onto Moyer for completion as a painting.

Alice Randall’s Magic Writing Glove

After a number of memorable Yaddo dinners, Pepe and Moyer agreed to ask the novelist and songwriter Alice Randall to be their “design client.” During a visit to Pepe’s studio, Randall decided to commission a “Magic Writing Glove” from the team. The client was interviewed. Both artists took cues from the interview. Moyer designed and painted fabric for the glove and handed it to Pepe. Pepe took cues from the color and weight of the textile, designed and fabricated the glove.
