Artist Statement "Exponential Expressions" is a collaboration between Chris Marshall and Debra Scidone, visual artists living in Perth, Western Australia.

We are both award-winning artists but with very different styles, Debra doing mainly traditional pastels and watercolors while Chris does mainly contemporary mixed media and digital art. Despite these differences, we also produce collaborative work where we both work on the same canvas at the same time. These artworks tend to be mixed media on gallery linen - the fusion of our own individual styles produces complex works with an interesting interplay of colour, media and texture.

We are most often inspired by abstract patterns in nature, a principal focus of interest being intriguing waterways and wetlands where we often visualise the vegetation as textiles.

We are both keen photographers and spend countless hours researching the wetland reserves in different seasons, tides, time of day, weather conditions, absorbing the different moods whilst finding ourselves constantly drawn to a few common threads – the layered landscape, the encroaching development, the colours and textures of the vegetation, the magic reflections and patterns of wind and currents on the water, and always the amazing birdlife.

Our joint exhibition Mandjar Blues is on display at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre in Western Australia from January 21 until February 13, 2011.


Why ExEx?

An infinite means of EXpressing ourselves with artworks that have many layers of meaning

EXploring the double ‘X’ factor ( the special or the unknown)
that comes with collaboration from 2 artists already successful in their own styles

EX-Presidents; we always had a notion that we would do something together once we were no longer in our roles as Presidents of two art groups in Perth

Award-winning Artists x 2
= Infinite possibilities (to the nth degree)
