Ongoing collaborative project between Andrew Howard and Laura Wild
Our collaboration involves the two of us adjusting and building on each other's work and mailing the work backwards and forwards to each other. The last time we met face-to-face was in the National Gallery, London in 2002 and prior to that we hadn't seen each other since 1989 when we first met and became friends in St.Ives, Cornwall for a period of four months. Our communication about the project is mainly by text message and hand-written letters that we sometimes include with the work. Our first project took the form of small drypoints worked on aluminium, we mailed the plates to each other and one or other of us would decide when to print the result. It was Andrew's suggestion to begin working on bigger sheets of paper and to include drawing, painting and collage.
