“I made pictures of faces – one for each day of 2013. Partly inspired by a Bruno Munari at the Estorick last year and partly by the Souzou exhibition of outsider art from Japan at the Wellcome Collection, which I went to see when I had already started the faces. Videos from the exhibition reminded me to how to indulge myself in drawing like I did as a child.
As I made a picture I put it straight up on to my studio wall to join the other faces.
Like the books from last year, I don’t think of them as having a set format; it depends on the context and place. I printed grids of the faces and made books for a show in the Foyer Gallery at Letchworth Arts Centre.”
