Sarah Phyllis Smith
Douglas Degges

Flypaper is an exhibition of recent collaborative work by Douglas Degges and Sarah Phyllis Smith. The work explores the space between idea and feeling through the pairing and layering of text and image. Image-making is approached as a physical thinking process and objects become containers for shared memories. For Sarah, whose work is often rooted in autobiographical narrative, this work is a move toward improvisation and abstraction. For Douglas, this work marks an embrace of representational imagery and storytelling.
