Collaborative drawings made by Steven Carrelli, a faculty member in The Art School, long-distance with a colleague in Texas are the featured exhibition this month at Chicago's Hofheimer Gallery.

"Field Studies" is a decade-long project in which either Carrelli or Adam Fung initiates a drawing, then hands it to the other for completion, based on the marks or image originally placed there. As Chicago Gallery News describes the interaction, "the form of the drawing often [becomes] so unified that the boundary between one’s contribution and the other’s is no longer discernible."

The genesis for "Field Studies" dates to when both Carrelli and Fung lived in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. In 2013, Fung moved to Fort Worth to become a professor of art at Texas Christian University. Nevertheless, the artists' collaboration continued.
