Bud Cook & & Jean-Paul Jacquet : “NO RULES”

 Reception on Wednesday, April 10th, 5:00-7:00 pm

           “No Rules” is a series of collaborative paintings produced by Bud Cook and Jean-Paul Jacquet. For this project each canvas was exchanged multiple times between the artists’ studios as they were gradually worked toward completion. Successive steps of addition, erasure and thematic reinterpretation resulted in works that blend and expanded on the works that Cook and Jacquet make as individual artists. Figurative, animal, and graphic imagery were derived from a broad range of influences. Film, literature, photography, comics and musical content initiated and further directed each stage of image transformation.
 
            The process of artistic collaboration here employed degrees of trust, risk and faith in as much as painterly facility. Each active work in progress served as an interface between individual perspectives of an idea at alternate stages of development. The resulting paintings were further augmented by Cook and Jacquet’s provocative visual interactions that break with conventional autonomies of individual studio practice.  A video containing images and interviews with Cook and Jacquet that document this process can be viewed at http://vimeo.com/41040672.
 
            Bud Cook has a BFA in painting/printmaking from Rhode Island College and lives in Woodstock, CT.  Jean-Paul Jacquet has a BFA in illustration from Syracuse University and lives in Pomfret, CT.                                       
           Pegasus Gallery is located within the library on the first floor of Chapman HallHours: Monday - Thursday 8am-8pm, Friday 8am-4:30pm & Saturday 9am-2pm, when classes are in session. 
          The Niche is located in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office.
