An Artistic Collaboration

  From the Anguilla Local News - Site Map.

[Click for larger view of 'Melee'] Showing at Savannah Gallery, in The Valley through February and March, is the large four by six foot painting, "Melee", by the artistic team of Lynne Bernbaum and Jo-Anne Hill Saunders. With the wealth of talented artists living and working in Anguilla these days, it's interesting to see something quite new - a collaborative effort! Lynne and Jo-Anne have even named their movement; "duoism".

Inspiration for the style of painting "Melee" came from a book that both artists were enjoying titled "Australian Aboriginal Paintings" by Jennifer Isaacs. Photographs in that book depicted groups of artists laboring on a single painting. Inspired by these group efforts, Lynne and Jo-Anne finished "Melee" recently and anxiously await reactions, for duoism creates a style that looks like neither a typical Bernbaum or Saunders painting.

The title, "Melee" refers to a Caribbean slang word for gossip, and more specifically to the confusion and chaos created by gossip.
