For almost 19 years Katy Anderson and Patrick Medrano have been submerged in the arts in Houston, Texas and abroad. What started out as a love story between a photographer and a painter sculpture, has over the years blossomed into a thriving and much sought after collaborative art entity. Although Medrano and Anderson's solo art careers have grows significantly, it's their collaborative work that has flourished, giving birth to what is now simply known as "ANDERSON+MEDRANO". With backgrounds as different as their personalities, Medrano and Anderson become one in their works of art creating original one of a kind works of art that range from paintings made using photographs printed on various materials to larger projects like their two stop motion animation films. "Our process is always the same" the duo explains, "We shoot, paint and build what our individual hearts desire. Then through the shuffle of life they find their way into each their frame." Katy's beautifully soft black/white photos giving comfort and balance to Patrick's hand on soulful brush strokes and custom fit structures. A unique balance of light and darkness.
"Patrick Medrano's 3D works, paintings, and interactive devices intrigue viewers into searching within, to face a sometimes not so pleasant reality of the world around us, including ourselves. Many works also include photographs taken by collaborative partner, Katy Anderson. In the 19 years they have spent together they have produced over 500 now sold pieces of collaborative works and shown in Paris, France and most recently in Athens, Greece. Katy Anderson's thought provoking photography captures memories, emotions, and purpose of being, leaving the viewer content and eager to drink in more. With harmony, perfect blending of conception and form, the two become one, contained within collaborations of true unison, completing a breath taking tour of the visual experience."
