Presentation with artists Cheryl Walker and Marvin Castillo

Rhythmic Bond  presented by HOPE Center for the Arts 
This exhibition features the collaborative work of HOPE artist, Marvin Castillo, and Los Angeles based artist, Cheryl Walker; both mark makers, one living with disabilities, one without.  This is the story of their work together in the studio as part of HOPE Center for the Arts visiting artist/mentorship program HOPE Art Lab.

Marvin speaks through movement, through gesture; the gesture of the mark, the movement of his hand. All of the pieces in the show are truly collaborative, touched by each artist’s hand. This process changed Marvin. It was as if, through his interaction with Cheryl, the title of artist was bestowed, transferred through the shared space of making. In the making of this body of work, Marvin clearly began to regard  himself as an artist through an awareness of being recognized and validated by an established artist (Cheryl) for his contribution. And for Cheryl, she learned to take her cues from Marvin, to follow his lead, to adjust to his mark. In turn, Marvin gave Cheryl the space to reconnect to the intrinsic therapeutic value of art making, connecting to the flow of life and to each other, speaking in marks. What transpired between them was the alchemy of connection, the rhythmic bond.
