Will Barras in The Unresolved, Fousion Gallery, Barcelona (until 15 June 2021)

Fousion Gallery presents The Unresolved, a collection of paintings made by Will Barras (Unit 8, Studio TB-132) and O.Two (aka James Carey) made during lockdown in early 2021.

Through text messages and occasional phone calls, what might usually happen in the pub, or on visits to each other’s studios, the artists explored ideas, joked about global pandemics and built a concept for a collection of collaborative pieces. In the spirit of the Surrealist’s Exquisite Corpse, in which artists blindly contribute to an image that is revealed only once finished, each artist paints the first few layers of a set of canvases and then after a socially distanced, clandestine exchange in a lonely carpark halfway between here and O.Two’s countryside home studio they worked over and into each other’s previous paint.

Fousion Gallery, C/ de la Carassa 4, 08003 Barcelona, Spain.
