Mark Barrow and Sarah Parke first collaborated in 2008 with a painting exhibited in Barrow's first solo exhibition at White Columns in New York. Parke then began weaving the fabric for all of Barrow's subsequent paintings. As the textiles became increasingly complex and as weaving's logic became the conceptual framework that linked their diverse interests, it became harder to differentiate where one or the other's ideas began or ended. In 2013 the pair started working and exhibiting under a joint moniker.
