Toil of our Hands

The collaborative husband-and-wife team of Emma Biggs and Matthew Collings produces some amazing modern paintings. The couple works together on their large-scale abstract works in which she designs and chooses the color and tone of each piece while he paints them. While Biggs is well-known in the mosaic world and Collings in the broadcasting and writing fields, they come together to create these modern geometric oil paintings that really draw the viewer in.

The paintings above and below are part of a new exhibit entitled The Whole Earth featured at the Vigo Gallery in London through this Friday, February 10th, 2012.
