In her series Double Life Kelli Connell combines multiple images featuring the same model, depicting various polarities of identity through the subtle use of clothing and body language. In these complex situations, Connell explores the exterior and interior self, the irrational and rational self, and the masculine and feminine psyche. In the words of the artist, “The work represents an autobiographical questioning of sexuality and gender roles that shape the identity of the self in intimate relationships.” Connell participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in 2008.
