Paul Roy and Clea
van der Grijn did not know each other.
In 2012, through social media, they both discovered a shared interest in the
concept that individual perceptions of the same thing greatly differ. People
can see the same thing, but as they see it through their own life experiences,
the thing ( be it imagined or real ) has entirely separate interpretations.
Thus, on the 8th
January 2013, without ever meeting, GREEN IS PINK was born.
Rules were made.
The common theme would be loss.
Both artists were
given hand cut sheets of 20 x 15 cm 200grm paper and they would try and visually express loss and
then post it to the other artist who, in return would respond with their
interpretations of the other artists work whilst adding their own experiences.
Both Paul and Clea
posted these images back and forth for 5 months whilst adding, editing and
composing a dialogue which they thought as Green is Pink.
All images –
