Over the course of a 2013, David Spooner and I painted 52 portraits of each other on the same canvas (1 per week). We divided the canvases down the middle with a painted line and painted each other simultaneously. They were exhibited at The Walls, Miami; The Hold Artspace, Brisbane; and Serpentine Gallery, Lismore.
