Collaborative Work by Stephan Canthal & Patrick Haemmerlein
Showing in the Upstairs Gallery:
Stephan Canthal and Patrick Haemmerlein have been exhibiting together in the same group shows around Los Angeles for over two years. In that time, they began to realize that their work attracted similar clients, which makes sense. Both artists work with photography, both work with images that explore the city and nature and both developed there own alternative process for creating and displaying their works. The idea to collaborate on a project grew from a genuine interest in each other's art and the desire to create something new and different. What both artists quickly discovered was that the collaborative effort not only greatly influenced their individual projects, but also influenced their overall ideas about creating, showing and selling art. The resulting artwork is exciting, edgy and unique. It is a successful marriage of different styles, mediums and techniques.
