Sergio & Claudia Olivos Collaborative works (paintings & drawings)
Sergio and Claudia began working in collaboration when they decided to gift something special to a friend who was going to perform their candle ceremony (partnership/wedding/matrimonio/zowage/)
Many ask about the process inherent in their pieces:
“Because I am primarily a figurative artist who has always aspired to be abstract… I thouroughly enjoy the spontaneity of working into the inks and acrylic/coffee/wax mixes that Sergio lays out for me to work into.
We usually assess together what to do with certain pieces, and will work into them from there.
We are often asked wether we have trouble collaborating in this way… and the honest answer is no. We have great fun.
The discovery of the pieces is thrilling and we look forward to see what will happen next.
Since there are two of us working together … it excacerbates the element of surprise innate about painting (which I have always found in my work)”.
