The representation of twins in art has always been fascinating due to their embodiment of the concept of duality and symmetry. They often evoke themes of identity, mirroring, and parallel existence. This oil painting on thick paper by Christopher Mark Brennan depicts twins and is dated from 2022.
It is a profound work that, at first impression, is simple but is filled with hidden layers and filters that evoke a timeless duality of life and death. The play between shadows and highlights creates a powerful and disturbing effect, amplified by the presence of crosses protruding from the twins' heads like antennae, suggesting a cosmological and spiritual dichotomy while opening infinite windows of perception. This prompts viewers to reflect on their inner and intimate battles, finding a place in the present while avoiding concerns about the past and future, showcasing the deep complexity of this painting. The portrayed characters appear almost identical, and it is this "almost" that ushers the viewer into a new perspective, allowing for establishing symbolic significance beyond the use of a common language, making the painting exceptionally impactful.

Christopher Mark Brennan was born in 1950. He attended Washington University School of Fine Arts in St Louis, Missouri in 1974. After 1983 he made covers for magazines and artworks for Universal Studios, 3 cover Art for Frank Zappa CD, and other musicians.
He now lives in Santa Barbara and makes also smaller but still very striking paintings. His imagination seems to have no limit! He lives a private life, not sharing much online besides his art. I believe it allows us to see his artwork with a fresh and unbiased lens.
