Artists Statement on Reciprocity
In Conversation: Kay Westhues | Gina Costa
Our conversations and friendship, which began over a decade ago, have been enriched by our walks: through parks, in the woods, along the river.
We’ve used this time together to explore what we hear as well as what we see, to discuss what we’ve read and how we are faring during this year of isolation. Our walks have been a journey of mutual growth and a constant nurturing of artistic ideas.
As photographers, we collectively seek how to better understand and interpret how the pandemic has affected us, as individuals and as a society. These images, in their shared depiction of thresholds, help us to imagine what can be when we have finally passed through this uncertain time. They act as portals through which we each can find meaning and hope.
