Unity Laurie and 'Me'

I have begun another piece - one that looks at how three forms of representation have travelled through time with the people they represent.

First there is the daughter of 20th Century painter Sir Stanley Spencer (Unity Spencer) and the doll that she was painted holding at the age of seven. Then there is a young man (Laurie Spacie) who, at the age of four, was imagined in pastels by his step father as an older person. He is now somewhere near the age he was imagined. Then there is me. My representation considers a video portrait I made of myself 36 years ago.

It will all make more sense if you read the blog I have begun on the AN website >>
