Monet, Collings+Biggs and Tietzsch-Tyler

The Museo Thyssen has a show presenting the influence of Monet on abstract expressionism. The website shows works by Pollock, Krasner, Rothko, Frankenthaler, Mitchell, Twombly, De Kooning. 

 Matthew Collings and Emma Biggs are showing the recent collaborative works 'Pattern Industry' at FAS in London. I like the introduction of mosaic but feel I would like them to swap roles now. It would be interesting to see how this would alter the forms, colours and touch of the works. Their change of jobs would highlight the significance of the process they have adopted. Are their different tasks important in their relationship or is it the notion of collaboration and structure in their work that is more meaningful?

And these sombre, grey, 'Thin White Duke' of paintings by Henry Tietzsch - Tyler at Bend in the River.
