Where were you 8 years ago? Are you living in the same place, are you the same person? Eight years ago, I visited Ellie and Adeline in their home when they were a baby and a young girl, and painted this:
Now the girls are 9 and 13 years old, with interests in music, reading and art. It was compelling to step into the same house and see the girls as different people.
For this companion portait, I mirrored the poses and kept a surreal background.
It was a lot of fun to capture the passage of time and I would love to do more series like this!
