The mask paintings came about after I became fascinated by an image of conjoined twins that I came across in the British Museum archives. The mask-like conjoined faces became a symbol for identity and the different roles we play in life. The subject matter of the series in general is life, love, and loss. The white masks and the twin figures have gone, but the face and it’s reflection remain mask-like. The image of the bowl of cherries pays homage to the original gouache of that name.
