As an identical twin, I have always been fascinated by the moment when people saw us as two different people, when they recognized us as separate individuals, despite us looking the same. I wanted to recreate that moment of discovering the individual and demonstrate how it forever changes the way we look at something.
I created a series of work using only found natural objects. For example, Tondo No. 3 uses pine cone seeds but no two are the same. I chose one element within the piece to be a "twin" removing the original and replacing it with a watercolour .
Once the viewer discovers the "twin" in the piece, they become hyper-aware of its existence and their relationship to the piece is changed. We can't go back to viewing it as we did before - we can't unknow it.
