The twinned canvases – often separated by a tonal break, with one light and one dark canvas – mimic the processes of perception, thought and memory in the beholder. First, Le Brun’s binocular compositions interrogate the instantaneous coalescing of imagery that occurs as the brain merges views from two separate eyes. Unlike the experiences of theatre, music or literature, “Painting,” writes Le Brun, “is seen in an instant – suddenly.” However, by introducing a second, complementary element, these paintings can unfold over time, fluctuating between individual works, related family members, and the singular whole.
