The diptych consists of two portraits. Both are abstracted, but only one of them retains a recognizable shape, while the other one is distorted, looking as a kind of reflection on a false mirror, blurred into colour patches, and related to the proto-image only by hints. One of them is more tangible, material, physical, and the second one is ephemeral, reminiscent of an impression or a memory. A depersonalized anonymous portrait here becomes a tool to explore the possibilities of painting and relations between artistic representation and memory images.
