An experiment combining collage, print, and charcoal and chalks influenced by the Artists I’ve looked at recently. The printed figure is one twin and the collaged image on top of that is the other twin. By thinking of three words that encompass my project: ‘identity’, ‘combination’, and ‘reconstruction’, it creates a focus for my work so any experiment I do is to investigate those three words. By placing two twins faces together I begin to question their identity; who is who? Which one is which? It’s interesting to blur their identities into one. Combining their faces enables a closer examination into their similarities and differences, maybe bringing out the dominant features of each twin or just highlighting their resemblance? Finally, ultimately what I’m doing is reconstructing two twins’ faces into one, resulting in the ‘other’ being: a combination of both twins. Here the shape of the collaged image is quite interesting to look at and fits onto the printed image quite nicely. I think if the ink was applied a little heavier it would be more effective of a contrast between the light and dark, I also need to remember not to draw the features directly but to use tone and draw around them to bring them out. A face-on image would also provide more to compare each twin.
