44 drawings – that are the result of a collaborative exercise between Kyle Ranson and Daniel Higgs – that began in 1991 and set aside – this back and forth practice continued intermittently over the next 16 years through brief encounters and the postal system. In 2007, the two geographically separated artists re-initiated the game and it was decided to create a volume of these works. Three years in the making, this assemblage evolved into what became known as the ‘Morph Traits’ – a 4 color, 60 page off-set printed book, printed in a limited edition of 500 and published by NEEDLES & PENS.
All images from the book – will be displayed on the gallery walls.
