You Have No Idea How Much You Mean to People by the Lubbesmeyer twins
About the Piece: “You Have No Idea How Much You Mean To People” was created with lino block print, graphite, compressed charcoal, acrylic paint, and metallic media. As a collaborative team and twin sisters, we’re sensitive to how interconnected we are, and how much we all rely on community. Through social media, we requested people’s words of aspiration, and incorporated them into our depiction of a neighborhood, creating a global community representing our universal voice of optimism.
About the Artists: The art of the Lubbesmeyer twins is a collaboration between a printmaker and oil painter, who work in all media but are largely known for fiber art. The twins develop their imagery by working on alternate layers, without plan or discussion. They are inspired by nature, music, personal stories, patterns of light, juxtapositions of old and new, architecture, and travel. Their art encourages one to look outward as far and as wide as possible. The Lubbesmeyers’ work has won numerous awards, and is held in collections around the world. They are proud to reside and work in Bend.
