Origins, identity and the ramifications of genetic discoveries are the themes that drive the imagery of Chris Twomey’s work.
Triumph of the XX evokes the passion of the XX chromosome (female) in its ability to heal a flaw or mutation in DNA. A red haired woman is the metaphor for this concept; she recombines the genes of the world with men of different ethnic backgrounds, healing division. Aluminum foil, a simple substrate found in the kitchen, is also elevated within Triumph to an articulation of the divine.
