Double Take

Drawing

“You’re the twins, right?” is a phrase my sister and I have often encountered, and is a concept explored in my mixed media body of work, Double Take.

Having been inspired by the cynicism of Grayson Perry’s ceramic work, I bilaterally cut thrown ceramic forms to mimic the connotations of my sister and I only making up one half of one whole identity. Moreover, the symmetrical photorealistic drawings, paired alongside the vessels, show our gradual separation to find happiness in our own separate identities.

The intent of my work is to educate my audience to look beyond our psychical similarities, conveying that twins have different passions, emotions and identities.
