Paddle8 is very proud to present NADA Miami Beach 2011 online! Anticipating our exciting collaboration with NADA, we’ve been featuring spotlights on participating artists and galleries.
Colin Snapp and Daniel Turner have been exchanging and combining artistic visions for 10 years under the name Jules Marquis (a name borrowed from Colin Snapp’s grandmother). They are also co-founders of the non-profit art space in Virginia called Jericho Ditch, which operates out of a converted shed. Jules Marquis is known best for film installations, performance pieces, and art-rock music videos, creating works that are equal parts humorous absurdity and cultural criticism. Interestingly, the artists’ own styles are distinct from one another’s and also from that of Jules Marquis. On the matter of working together, they have said,
“Collaboration allows for one to venture into other arenas that go generally untapped. It gives you a tremendous amount of perspective on your own practice while allowing [you] to explore another. One becomes almost bilingual through the integration of once separate mediums.”
Next week at the Journal Gallery’s NADA Miami Beach booth, the solo works of Snapp and Turner will be exhibited alongside the work of Jules Marquis for the first time.
