As an artist I wanted to explore authentic and unique people with the ability to affect an audience. This led me to two women, both grandmothers, with one passion. Casting a documentary-maker’s eye over a story about opposites attracting, Talk Art suggests that art is an emotional practice and experience rather than a technical one. Art has the ability to form connections between artists. Despite their different experiences, we see an unexpected connection between these two women who practise and immerse themselves in the world of art. This unique relationship is a result of their shared passion – ‘it's a surprise!’
