Artist Statement:
“On this Occasion” is a piece exploring self-image and identity over time. A younger version of myself is depicted; the only remaining remnants of this self are a small collection of photographic images and memories. Whilst the environment around me remain largely the same, the experiences and vision of my reflected self has changed. This change in passage of time is represented by the contrast between the rectangular curtain-like shapes, which unveil fragments of the figure, and the background, with its shifted values and forms. As I stare back at the person that once was, I question whether this person is the same person writing these words, the same person that sits here before you.
