In 2015, Megan Mantia and Leone Reeves were performance artists in Kansas City (later in Los Angeles). I’d done some CNC routing to make huge letters for a project of theirs. They’d agreed to model and I’d asked them to choose clothing with pattern, stripes, and texture. They showed up at the studio in beards and mustaches and tipped the balance of our collaboration a little.
I made quite a number of images of the duo, both together and individually and drew several versions in pen and ink and also prepared some files in squiggly lines of green and magenta and black and white designed to be inkjet printed at variable scale. A gorgeous 60 inch high pair of the green and magenta prints from Dolphin Printing are mounted on aluminum di-bond and hang in my home.
