THE CAMERON TWINS

The Cameron Twins are a collaborative artist duo of identical twins who work together in a range of different media including screen printing, digital montage, photography, casting, sculpture and installation.
Their work has an overall strong and garish style using an oversaturated bright colour palette to create a surreal quality. The vivid colours and child-like naïve aesthetic with chaotic ensembles of images allows them to work playfully, exploring the ideas surrounding childhood imagination and dreams within their art practice.
The Cameron Twins work offer a wonderfully playful and bizarre Contemporary vision, whilst strongly evoking the original seminal 1960's Pop artists, particularly the Sculptor and mixed media artist Eduardo Paolozzi, whose artistic practice was similarly inspired by his collection of oddities, models, sculptures and toys, intertwined and juxtaposed with Contemporary Pop culture and iconography of the era.
The Cameron Twins montages and prints incorporate old paintings, photographs, notes and drawings collected from their own childhood belongings. The process of using these then acts as a visual conduit to their past and childhood memories. They draw upon a shared sense of nostalgia which is then expressed through their practice, suggesting they are also collaborating with their past selves.

The printmaking process is a very important element of the Cameron Twins’ practice, as it allows them to explore the idea of repetition, doubling and mirroring, which relates directly to their personal experience as twins, and the process can create a strange unsettling quality.
Hand pulling their own screens is a key part of their practice, and the outcomes can be unique, imperfect and uncontrollable, which is an added quality in their work creating a fun, child-like and often primitive characteristic.
Printing by hand can in itself be a playful process, and the challenges of printing in multiple layers, different materials or sizes and then the addition of stencilling allows them to compose new, complex compositions and images.

The Cameron Twins’ practice incorporates many familiar, recognisable, fun images and pop-culture references from childhood, such as Barbie, Trolls and My Little Pony.

'We enjoy using this popular imagery in our sculptures and prints as they add a playful and witty quality to the work and adds to the connectivity of our art across ages and social confines whilst still remaining personal and anecdotal’. (The Cameron Twins, 2022).
