KOLLABS


Kollabs is a collaborative project between artists Luis Garcia-Nerey and Anke Schofield. In their work, Kollabs create compositions juxtaposing undomesticated animals within domestic and urban environments, highlighting the interaction between wildlife and the human experience.

Their work embarks on a journey in which the viewer is presented with a open-ended narrative and no definitive conclusion, engaging the viewer as a participant in the ultimate storyline of each piece. Whether literal or abstract, Nerey and Schofield’s pieces do not rationalize a specific idea of the wilderness, but rather encourage the viewer to interpret the works without limitations set by concrete definitions.

Luis Garcia-Nerey lives and works in Miami Beach, Florida and Anke Schofield lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. The two divide their creative time traveling between studios in both Miami and Atlanta in order to create their provocative pieces.

This grouping of works focus on the interaction between modern day human society and the forest. Our intentions are to see past the obvious environmental issues and concentrate more on an existential point of view.” - Luis Garcia-Nerey

“Our ultimate goal is for the viewer to achieve a personal conclusion that is not based on the idea of an Other but rather a conclusion that is constructed by the viewers themselves.” - Anke Schofield
