Phyllis and Victor Merriam
Our collaborative work is produced through a collective mash-up of discussion and experimentation. Together we select the images that we want to develop into finished pieces. We experiment with processes and media to create variations of each image. Our goal is to produce an image that is fully realized but retains the immediacy of the original through the surprise of process.
Technology has greatly influenced how we communicate in an artistic space. We evolved to incorporate emerging technologies in our work. Our current process is not deterministic. We don’t know at the outset the precise image that we will produce. This allows us to be truly independent from the specific interpretation of the work itself.
Our art is a record of our collective thoughts and physical work. We revel in the reveal and want to share our vision with others who can appreciate and share our moments of excitement and discovery.
