The Dialogue Between Paintings: Example

A while back, I was thinking about the dialogue between my paintings and that I should pay more attention to it. Later that day, I went to a talk by Jeff Mincham about the works of his that were part of the Life and Solastalgia exhibition at the Perc Tucker Regional Galley.
Part way through the discussion, he looked at the three rectangular ceramics pots and a painterly ceramic triptych of his that were on display, frowned, and walked across and turned one of his rectangular pots to face the other way. The side now facing the viewer had the same three bands of night dark colours as the other side, but it also had a full moon. As can be seen in the illustrations below, this immediately amplified the dialogue between the works.
