Reading the Imagery


The work of Nancy Skolos and Tom Wedell invigorates the fields of design and photography as well as blurs the distinction between the two. Their collaborative creative process has often been described by the phrase “one brain, two bodies,” which characterizes the seamless integration of their two disciplines. Skolos and Wedell create sculptural, surreal compositions that blend image and text through layering, texturing and collage. Rather than relying simply on text to communicate a message, Skolos and Wedell harness the power of imagery to pack a loaded punch.
