Terrible Twos

A Friend of Mine collaborated with illustrator Alice Oehr for the Desktop Terrible Twos' exhibition held at No Vacancy Gallery in 2012. Participants were provided with two triangular pieces of timber and were asked to reflect on a composite word to create a joint artwork. Instead of individually interpreting our triangular pieces by looking at the left and the right, we chose to look at the outside and inside by angling the triangles to allow a cavity within. A Friend of Mine considered the form and minimalist exterior, whilst Alice Oehr created a busy burst of excitement which is hidden from front view and only revealed when looked at from a side viewpoint. We discussed “a restrained exterior versus an interior that’s bananas” — thus giving Alice a starting point to stretch her legs in her illustrative style. The proceeds of the sale of this piece will go to White Ribbon, a charity which aids domestic violence against women.
