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 muted colours in this painting give a surreal quality to the light. The title is borrowed from Poussin’s Dance to the Music of Time.
