No Longer on View

Twins depicts a pair of figures originally rendered in gouache, ink and silver leaf on paper. In the work, artist Jasmine Zelaya celebrates femininity through the use of repetitive floral patterns and explores racial and cultural identity by using layers of washes to create rich brown and olive skin tones. Twins reflects Zelaya’s interest in fashion and music of the 60s and 70s, her fascination with religious iconography and her preoccupation with concerns of modern society.
