Call & Response by John Casey & Mary Kalin-Casey

Call & Response by John Casey & Mary Kalin-Casey

$20.00

Call & Response matches Mary's writing with John's drawing and vice versa. In some cases John goes first, drawing a character engaged in an activity. Mary responds to the drawing with a short story, poem, or essay, depending on how the drawing strikes her. This response is the first time John's work is narrated in a format other than in the viewer's mind. When Mary goes first, John's challenge is to depict her story while maintaining the exploratory elements of drawing, taking inspiration from, but not over-illustrating, her often oddball tales. The duo's work is displayed in a left-to-right configuration with the "call" on the left and the "response" on the right. The results are both spontaneous and surprising.
