Maria Doering and Fiona Clark surrounded by their collaborative project.

“Shared Energies: Cells, Stars and the Fluidity Between” is a collaborative project between New York City (USA) based artist Fiona Clark and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (Canada) based artist Maria Doering.

We chose the title “Shared Energies” because of the exchange of the visual language and creative energy that happens between the two of us when we are drawing on the same piece of paper. On a conceptual level, the project is a merging of two ideas. The first being, “Outer Space” (the cosmos) and the second being, “Inner Space” (within the human body). Ultimately, this work is about creating and becoming something much bigger than our own individual work, which can only exist with both our input.
