A letter to our artists
We of b2zone want to say a big thank you to all of you who participated in this stellar project. You took the time and made all effort to contribute your motifs at no charge. Folks saying there is only bad happening in this world these days, you have proven exactly the opposite with your contribution to this complete artwork. You have proven that a global collaboration on one project is possible. Both, artists and organizers, have evinced a lot of patience and carried this unique project through 27 exciting months of travel.
Sent from South Africa, the box with the precious content had gone astray for six months, in a row boat across the Indian Ocean, which left all of us in suspense if it would ever reach the Australian coast. The collaboration of 28 leather artists has emerged into a fantastic collage. We think of one thing that probably all participating artists share, the huge responsibility for a piece of leather where several others had already tooled their motifs on. “Just do not spill any paint”
While the collage is completed now, the journey goes on. There are already Leather Museums in the U.S. that are interested in exhibiting this artwork. All of you artists have supported the all over organization and have made it pretty simple for us, Gina and Roland, because you were all ready to join the project. No-one we asked if he would like to participate, has given us a rebuff, everyone was willing to participate. For that, we thank you in particular. Very well done!
Gina & Roland
