Nina Molnar & Christine Shaw: 5 X 10
Nina Molnar and Christine Shaw are experienced multimedia artists who enjoy a creative challenge. Their joint exhibition celebrates the latest phase of their artistic versatility.
Since completing our HND in Fine Art at the College of Further Education, we have been working on separate projects but had been keeping in touch and sharing ideas. We decided to collaborate on a new project as a stimulus to freshly motivate and move our current work forward. It was felt that the concept of a randomly generated formula would also grant the freedom for interpretation, individual style and personal art language. So in 2016 our ‘5 x 10’ project was initiated.
The BRIEF for ‘5xlO’:
Select five publications of various genres; find the tenth page, the tenth line, and then the tenth word of each. Employ these words as a framework on which to base research and subsequent artwork. Despite our diverse styles, our creative journeys followed a similar path initially, as we coincidentally chose to work with a monochrome palette before exploring the boundless possibilities of our given focus and chosen medium. Due to personal
commitments work for the exhibition has been ongoing throughout the four year period so we are delighted that Guernsey Arts has given us the opportunity to exhibit our body of work at the greenhouse Gallery.View Online Exhibition
