Artist Susan Wickstrand and Art Brewer collaboration

8 06 2010

Documenting a few moments with artist Susan Wickstrand and legendary photographer Art Brewer. For their collaborative project, Art provided the primary images which Susan then collages with additional images, layers of paint, and finally an encaustic wax treatment. Featured subjects include Indonesia, Hawaii, and surfers such as Gerry Lopez and Dave Rastovich. The images, although iconic in and of themselves, are transformed as the pieces become complex visual narratives. These shots were taken in Art’s studio as he and Susan both “initial” each piece with their thumbprint and signature on verso.
