“A strength of the project is the fact that we don’t share a common ‘style’ or even a belief in why we all make the work that we individually make. Painters Painting Painters is a group only in the sense that we’ve agreed to meet about once a month and to participate in the task of creating portraits of each other.”
These are the words of Peter Hoffman, one of the ten artists from New Orleans who came together to create Painters Painting Painters. As the name implies, it involved them painting each other’s portraits.
The artists are: Kevin Brisco Jr., Aaron Collier, Natori Green, Peter Hoffman, Jeremy Jones, Erica Lambertson, Kaori Maeyama, Patch Somerville, Maddie Stratton, and John Isiah Walton.
