Collaborative Art Creations, was born out of the passion of photographer, Laresa Perlman, & artist, Verna du Toit. Together they combine over 100 years of artistic expression, creating unique conceptual art pieces. What comes to the surface, and eventually finds its way into an art form, is a journey representing their lives.
It contains, elements of shadow & light, masculine & feminine, heartbreak & triumph. It is with this drive & passion, through the process of embracing contrast & deliberate creation, that they wish to inspire others through their art. They believe Collaboration is the way of the future.
Their first piece has already been on exhibition in JHB at Gallery 2
