Friendship Magic Collective consists of painters Greg Eltringham and Honor Bowman Hall.
Our current ongoing collaborative project titled, “Homecoming,” is an investigation into our immediate environment, focusing on elements found in Savannah. We are interested in creating visual narratives that reflect our experiences in a deeply personal and imaginative painterly language. Our project is a conversation between our own points of reference. At times in synch, and at times tense, we create a dialogue about our lived experiences in Savannah. We employ specific painting strategies utilizing landscape, portraits, and narratives that touch on place, personal context, and transformation. This work is our response to the complex relationships and social dynamics that develop in this confined space. The ultimate goal of this project is to create and record our own visual diaries, evidence of our existence here at this moment in time, and to foster a lasting artistic dialog and friendship.
Join us for the public reception at the end of their residency during First Fridays in Starland on March 2nd from 6-9pm.
