Identity is an Important aspect of my work and this self portrait is no exception. The image has no clear identity, allowing you to add your own or connect it to a memory of your own. Whilst making this work I was thinking about Lucian Freud’s portraits, painted from life, as he saw it, in that immediate moment granting it immortality. I used reflective surfaces to distort my own reflection in order to distance the image from its source. The work focuses on identity and memory, their temporary nature and their ability to change with time.

Peter Naessens is an artist based in Dublin, Ireland, studying at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD). Drawing from his collection of photographs, books and documents as a primary source for his work combined with thoughts and memories. Working Mostly in Oil on canvas, he explores forgotten people and obsolete ideas often changing contexts or removing them altogether.
