The Project Twins (b. 1982)Muddled

Size100cm x 70cm
ProvenanceAcquired from artist

Muddled draws its influence from the designs for old psychology books and the challenging task of depicting complex emotional states through simplistic imagery. The Project Twins practice has graphic imagery at its core and the experience of working as designers enables them to unlock visuals that are instantly relatable. Muddled depicts the head of an anonymous individual who has a large number of smaller heads inside representing an array of moods, challenges or daily thoughts. The smaller heads inside the profile point to a frantic state of mind. They appear overcome, to have given up, reduced to closing their eyes in the hope that the frenzied nature of their life may dissipate. This feeling of being overburdened is one that is easily recognizable within the print and one which viewers will identify with.
