Awkward x 2,
Awkward x 2 is a collaboration between two painters, Rebecca Norton and Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe. We began to work together in the summer of 2010 and our show at the Suburban, opening on October 29th, will be Awkward’s first solo show. Awkward’s chief interest is painting, but we also want to explore new ways in which to talk about art and further collaborations into areas outside of art as such that might nonetheless inform what we do. We’re interested in beauty, the involuntary, pleasure and complexity and in what results from two people working on the same thing in a field where works have traditionally been associated with individual subjectivities. Rebecca Norton received her MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 2010, Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe received his from Florida State University in 1970. She is from Kentucky, he is from Kent.
