two artists working together
During Covid artists altered their way of working. Some went into a dormant state, others worked furiously. Jean Munro McCarthy and Jean McNeil met in the garden to work on paintings together. Not just side by side, but on the same large piece of paper, brush strokes and mark-making responding to each other’s. They aimed not just to share ideas but to fully collaborate, in the hope of breaking free from the constraints of previous style and method.
