Lucas: As a multidisciplinary artist I am interested in capturing and showing the unseen and undefinable often working collaboratively. Through long conversation with Mira, she responded spontaneously with poses and gestures using her objects and captured on 8 x 10 camera with photo paper. This collaboration happened in a cold February night in a Leith

Mira: The gesture in this image captures the excitement of painting – scraping away façade and getting to the core of things. While painting, my whole body is engaged and sometimes I paint with my hands or just the palette knife.
