We are two individuals sharing one artistic vision. We have lived life as a pair; learning to give and take, our ideas and identities sandwiched together, measured and compared. We are a pair of identical twins collaborating and exploring the dynamics and special features of our twinship.

Central to our work, is the continuation of our collaboration. The act of negotiation and problem solving enriches our work and embodies a combined perspective as our work is a result of our communications as we both work on each piece simultaneously, side by side. The actual application of our surfaces is an intuitive process, one of layering, peeling, revealing, and reworking. In this joint venture, we are interested in composing a visual language and developing a vocabulary of images that explore themes and ideas of identity and the surrounding environment..
