'I make art with my dominant hand, and I can represent another artist through the hand that they make their art with. Using my time and labor to honour another’s labor, be it physical or intellectual, is a kind of service or homage...

If you take a quick glance at one of these drawings, it looks like a right and left hand. Look more closely and you realize that’s not the case–it’s the same hand, and it’s somehow interleaved with itself. It looks right, but then, it’s clearly wrong. To get this effect I digitally cut up the photos and spliced them together to make impossible combinations, and then drew the resultant compositions. I like to make work that seems normal at first glance but on closer inspection is really weird.' – Karl Haendel.

Double Dominant, which includes an essay by Natilee Harren is the sixth in Triangle Books' series of artist books dedicated to b/w portraits.
