Dialogue through Drawing

As an engaged couple, Katie and Rachel are a pair of visual thinkers and makers. The couple communicates through a variety of methods (physical, verbal and visual) to express their thoughts, feelings, and intentions. From early on in their relationship, they have employed conversation drawing to dialogue with one another. During the process no words are spoken as a deep, quiet, meditative like connection unfolds. In regard to the current exhibition, this practice served as the foundation for their sculptural prints. The process encouraged an intuitive exchange of emotion, utilizing the arts as a vehicle for dialogue and personal awareness.
