This summer I teamed up with a painter represented by Amazwi Contemporary Art. Zimbabwean impressionist Charles Nkomo currently lives in South Africa and paints traditional African imagery on canvas. We met a couple years ago while Charles had an exhibition of his paintings in Saugatuck, Michigan. I gave him a dozen unfinished, but fired, ceramic forms for him to paint on if he had time. He did, and they were all sold immediately. The light bulb then was lit, and discussion began for a large scale collaboration. This summer Charles lived on my farm for 4 weeks, creating works together at a frenzied pace. Almost 2000 pounds of clay was thrown into 3-dimensional canvases for Charles, in about 10 days for time. There were two large exhibitions of the work, both being highly successful. Come see the collaborative works in person at the gallery, each tells a unique story.
