Sheldon presents recently acquired works by Kelli Connell from her ongoing series Double Life. Since 2002, Connell has explored the subjects of gender, intimacy, and aging through invented documentation of a couple’s quiet, personal moments. Each work is a carefully constructed image in which both partners are played by the same model. Using Photoshop software, Connell seamlessly stitches multiple images together to assemble single scenes that cause attentive viewers to question what they’re actually seeing. Connell describes Double Life as “constructed realities that, through their fictions, reveal inner truths.”
