you and me is a collaborative work by Judith North and Charmaine Stimson.
The work explores the
relationship between individual viewpoints. Each of us has our own unique
standpoint, both in physical terms and in terms of our own opinions and
attitudes. There may be overlaps with the views of others, but this collective
agreement will never be a complete match. The extent to which our views mesh
with those of others provides us with a measure of our common ground.
street scenes as a starting point, the between you and me
paintings and animation capture those elements that were common to both artists’
different physical standpoints. As two interpretations of the same scene vie
with each other, an area of agreement emerges – a common ground which seems to
take on its own form and become an entity in its own right.
