Oftentimes, we stumble upon artworks that stem from the same idea but have very different visual outcomes. That’s why we set up our ‘Two of a Kind‘ series – to see how two artists working with the same starting materials can transform them in their own unique way.
Sydney-based Peechaya Burroughs is a graphic designer with a penchant for photography. We’ve featured her work previously. Burroughs’s minimalistic compositions with a quirky touch run like a common thread through her creations and her ‘Two of a Kind’ contribution is no different.
With a background in drawing, painting and sculpture, mixed media artist Cherine Fahd focuses on photography. We’ve featured her work before. Says Fahd about the idea behind her ‘Two of a Kind’ contribution titled ‘Girl’: “As soon as I opened the package and saw the various objects, the ‘little eyes’ struck me as perfect as the basis of a ‘face’. And I knew I would immediately use them as eyes. It’s a simple approach. I didn’t want to destroy the objects, so the challenge was to use them as they were and see what would arise. I found the bust in a second hand market and it was perfect for the face. ‘Girl’ is for the most part puzzled (at least her expressions suggest so).”
