This double portrait of the two men, two paralleled figures, shown side by side and in profile, was inspired by Robert Mapplethorpe’s photograph “Ken Moody and Robert Sherman, 1984”

“I didn’t see Mapplethorpe’s photograph as a symbol of race relations, but more as a neutral background subjected to interpretation. And from this "blank slate", with no built-in inherent meaning I assigned the significance rendered by the system of beliefs I express.
I don’t see two men, I see one, I don’t see races, I see humans, I don’t see black and white, I see colours, I don’t see a history of separation, I see nonduality and the essence of nonduality given by the experience of connection.” Anca Stefanescu
