I depicted the bond between my twin brother, George, and myself. I combined digitally manipulated portraits with drawing to express the connection twins have. The repetition and movement symbolise our changing moods, thoughts and close relationship. Nothing is more powerful than the familiarity between us. We have a profound understanding and share an inherent knowledge of each other’s emotional state. Even though we may go in different directions we feel the presence of the other. I was influenced by the expressive portraits of Abdul Abdullah and Käthe Kollwitz.
