ArtPrize Jukebox

2011 ArtPrize Entry

This project is a collaboration of the US painter, Royce Deans from Michigan and the Dutch/Israeli painter, Tali Farchi-vd Wouden. Our work historically is based in the symbiotic relationship that exists between the disciplines of painting and music. This project will consist of setting up our collaborative studio as an installation that will be a constant work in progress, where the public will come face to face with the creative process of our paintings. Visitors will be asked to plug their iPods into an amplifier for all to hear as we create paintings inspired by the music of their choosing. We welcome music from classical to hip-hop and jazz to rock. During the several painting sessions we will hold per day, 4' X 4' paintings will be created as an amalgamation of all the songs played over the period of about an hour. The collection of paintings that will grow as ArtPrize continues.
