Twins Parallel Manic Depression

”Twins” 🎨 by Dan Victor •⁠ I am a Gemini. Just going to get it out there. This is not so much about that, as the duality of self. This is a male and female. She is out, getting her hands dirty, active in life. He is sitting inside, next to a bowl of porridge. I find that I have a range of personality. These extremes can characterize the diversity of our personality.⁠

As someone who is bipolar, I understand this duality in yet another sense. I made this piece before I knew my diagnosis. In college, I was unaware of my mood swings. I did have a sense that something was off. In hind sight, it makes sense that this art manifested itself from my subconscious.

I used coffee, charcoal and cigarette ash on paper. I taped the paper to have those two figures separated with a crisp edge, with a full margin of space between. It’s fun when I pull the blue tape off. ⁠
