Exhibited as part of the exhibition , ‘The Skin I’m In’, these works on paper feature multi image portrayals of an elderly man in a Wee Willie Winkie nightshirt. As in all my current work I am very aware that rather than portraits of the model they are my own thoughts and feelings projected onto the model in an attempt to explore the real lives of others. In this particular case I am obviously looking forward (with much trepidation) to my own old age. The photographs were taken indoors but I first moved the characters into the back garden , where much squirrel watching occurs. The title of this first piece came from a sign on the side of a builders van which of course referred to brickwork. PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT WHAT MIGHT APPEAR TO BE BOOK ILLUSTRATION ARE IN FACT 5′ X 4′;
