This exhibition is the culmination of works made together, using their different experiences to create and respond to each other on the canvas, resulting in a dialogue of colour imagery, and ideas. Jennie and Aimee will typically each start a painting and then swap their canvases, having no say or influence on what the other will add. Preview evening open to all on Tuesday 30th July 6-8pm.
