Silver Circle Gallery Presents:

The Silver Circle Gallery is proud to announce the upcoming exhibit No Rules: A Collaborative Show with Works by Jean-Paul Jacquet and Bud Cook. Both talented painters in their own right, JP and Bud have combined creative forces and pushed the envelope in a show that conceptually redefines the individual creative process through artistic collaboration.

The concept was simple: each artist would generate a painting based on musical inspiration that would be handed to the other to freely interpret and develop over the existing painting. Both JP and Bud knew from the beginning that the idea of letting another alter personal work would present many challenges. They so agreed that the only rule from the beginning was that there were no rules. As the project evolved, so did the process and theme.  As new pieces were started, the theme widened to be based on a 'moment of inspiration', rather than being confined to only music - so literature, photography, films or real-life experiences served as the muse. A conversation developed between the artists as they shared their own experiences, and as more pieces were handed back and forth so began a defined and unique creative process for each piece or series of pieces.
