“Don’t Be So Blue” is a single body of work produced by artists Mizin Shin and Rachel Shelton. For Shin and Shelton, working collaboratively is hardly a stretch. While the two maintain separate and often contrasting studio practices, there are several points of connection between their work: both artists are printmakers with a background in drawing; both are interested in analyzing connections and systems from both macro and micro perspectives; and both usually begin with a concept and build a body of work from there.
