Beci Orpin & Kat Mcleod // Hidden Place

Thursday, 18 April 2013

If I was in Melbourne right now, I'd be trying to get my eyeballs close to this amazing collaborative exhibition that is taking place. Two of my favorite Australian artists, Beci Orpin and Kat Macleod, have joined forces to spread a little bit of illustrative magic.



The collaboration was a suggestion by their mutual agent, Jacky Winter Group who introduced them for the purpose of the exhibition. Their early working process as told by Beci is so gorgeous...

kat and i started by sending pictures of things that were inspiring us to each other, from that we decided on a theme. then we drew up 2 lists of words, relating to the theme and also things we both liked to draw, and then divided the words in 2 jars and picked them out randomly. these random picks became the titles of each piece of work.

They each began five works before swapping to complete the others' unfinished work. Such a great meeting of minds! I can't wait to see more images from those lucky enough to have seen them.



Read more over at the ever fabulous Design Files and also more pics of the exhibition on Beci's blog.
Go see the exhibition in real life at Lamington Drive Gallery, Melbourne. (It's on until 25th May)
