Sculpture: Bronze, Metal on Bronze.
Sisters (Confidantes) is from a cycle called "Pairs," which I created in 2012, the year I got married. I began to think about how everything in the world and everything in life is somehow connected to and dependent on something else. I drew first on my experience as a twin (fraternal) and the brother of twins (identical, seven years younger) and on my new experiences as a husband. The sculptures in this cycle are pairs of stylized male and female figures, each symbolizing two characters or elements that are intrinsically linked.
This sculpture is also known as "Macedonia and Serbia," because of the sibling-like closeness I felt between my home country (Macedonia) and my new home (Serbia), which were one country during the period of Yugoslavia and share a strong cultural and historical connection.
