Though Valentine’s day has passed, we feel the need to lengthen this year’s celebration of love. Drive-By Projects is please to present Love Match, an exhibition of work by artist pairs who are life partners. Each couple has selected works that reflect their shared professional and personal relationships.

"Title of my painting is "the painter's true love" and is exactly what it looks like- imaginary flowers sprouting from the palette. This is a symbol for the fact that our shared careers as painters both connect and separate us. Being able to share visual culture all the time is the source of our greatest joy and the separations are temporary even if they are frequent."
–Hannah Barrett for herself and Laurel Sparks

"We have been in love for 42 years and our studio work habits/materials are significantly different. Jerry is more oriented to sculpture and Wendy to painting. Sometimes we need fresh eyes to visit our studios, which are next to one another, to point out that we are thinking about similar images but forming different perspectives. These two pieces relate to one another through referencing the body and physical interactions. Tongue to tongue, cheek to cheek."
–Wendy Edwards and Jerry Mischak

Christopher Schade and Zoe Pettijohn Schade are both concerned with how an image relates to, or is informed by the structures that contain and organize it. In the pair of works in the show, the leafy subjects pictured are shaped by, and strain against these constraints.
–Zoe Pettijohn Schade and Christopher Schade

Joe Zane's bold probing of essential questions that circulate around the making and presentation of art. His work employs a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, video and sculptural objects that include frequent references to the art world. Zane attempts to instill an almost comic awareness in the viewer of his or her futile attempts to locate ultimate meaning in a work of art. Julia Featheringill often sees humor in the mundane and utilizes it for her subject matter.
–Julia Featheringill and Joe Zane
