Over Just the Same depicts an androgynous figure contained in a space with no specific time of context. The work references a multitude of conventions from 18th century European portraiture to contemporary Japanese horror. Besieged by hair blown around by unknown forces, the figure shifts between serenity, trauma and even arrogance. This work forms part of a larger body of work that critiques filmic portrayals of event and trauma by permanently suspending the climatic ‘act’ of the immediate aftermath of an unnamed happening.
