Artist's statement

The Twins is part of a larger series that examines identity in terms of siblings in order to contrast and reflect upon the nature of their relationship. This portrait observes and acknowledges their relationship as both ordinary and unique. Ask any twin what it's like to be a twin and they will look bemused; being a twin of a twin is normal and yet, their differences and similarities are exaggerated. Their differences are unseen or certainly more immense to the twin.
