ABOUT MICHAEL DUMONTIER AND NEIL FARBER
Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber are Winnipeg-based artists who work collaboratively to create paintings, drawings and text-based work. The artists' imagery and texts are generated primarily through a call and response approach wherein paintings and drawings serve as the catalyst for the text. Using humor as a key device, the result of their collaborative process is a fusion of imagery and text layered with absurd narratives and dark humor. Their work is influenced by Surrealist language and methodologies, and often utilizes word play.
