In Tandem and in 3D

Part of Dave & Jenn's new work, "We Told Adam We'd Get Over This."

As if painting in tandem for Calgarians David Foy and Jennifer Saleik wasn’t difficult enough, they’re beginning to work with sculpture. Dave & Jenn’s latest series, In Which They Find Themselves Between Here and There, showcases their new double-sided paintings on plinths and their 14-foot-wide painting with 3D elements.

“Our interest in painting has always been in how we can mess with the basic ideas of [painting],” says Saleik. “It’s dangerous when any person who’s used to doing two-dimensional things tries to muck around in 3D. We’re painters not sculptures, and sometimes we can be painfully aware of that.”

Self-described landscape artists, Dave & Jenn have spent the past four years crafting a narrative that combine inner mythology and historical documentation. Their new work looks to refine this new world they’ve created.
