Oil on canvas, 2016, 30"w x 36"h

I use old family home videos and photographs as my source material to create autobiographical oil paintings about how my relationship with my twin sister has developed throughout the years. Exploring my family archive of photographs, I gravitate toward images of us that seem spontaneous and candid. Through the translation of these photographs into paintings, I focus on exploring our twin bond in an attempt to illustrate moments of personal growth. By reflecting on these family photographs and videos, I am inviting the viewer to connect with the imagery and with feelings of nostalgia.
