The collaboration with my husband, Mel Durand, was done as an act involving our entire family. The resulting work was exhibited at Spaces in Cleveland, Ohio in 1989. The piece centered around my and his understanding of the sports world and the place we held in it. We had come to surround our lives, as the parents of two young male athletes, in a constant involvement with sports. The collaboration became a way to show how we had grown into each other over the years. On the most part the project centered around integrating my flat, soft painted and printed images with my husbands seductive way of using found and created forms. The arrangements produced a provocative statement about The Sporting Life.
