Hart School Art Auction (47/91)


“This work was made as part of a series of works that took the protagonist of Ambivalent Man as an ongoing figure. Ambivalence personified, in this work, he is twinned - a reiteration that suggests the endless copying of classical tropes and figures over vast periods of time, but also a kind of 'other', his difference manifest by the inevitable variations of the drawing hand. The twins hide under the fountain - fearful of what we do not know, perhaps everything. Whilst the overflowing waters of the font is a paradox itself: a symbol of virility and power squished into frame, with its asymmetrical and awkward proportions undermining its classicism.” - Luke Burton, 2021
