Collaboration with Emma Coleman

Emma Coleman and I have known each other a long, long time. She contributed to two shows I curated ("Four By Four" and "100 Mothers"). I found a cartoon of Richard Nixon by Philip Guston. I had an idea we could somehow turn the small b&w cartoon into a large full colour painting. Emma talked about the Frost/Nixon film and suggested we also painted David Frost. I said we could have 2 seperate paintings and then she came up with the idea of the Frost and Nixon both being on a TV screen. Below is a work in progress of the Frost painting...

Here's Emma with the end result...
