Mostly Uninvited 610

Ray Winstone, who does not do posh-bashing. Taken from Time Out (No.2320, March 17-23, 2015), found on a train. Photographer: Rob Greig.

If You Are New Here: This project involves me sewing faces, from the obscene amount of junk mail that finds its way into my house, onto a big woollen blanket. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the junk mail was pushed through my letterbox. Or else it was inside of a newspaper. I will always credit photographers, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.

    • There is a lot in the news over here at the moment about government cuts in the arts, and how this will impact on children from poorer families, who won’t be able to afford to go into this field, because you pretty much have to do it for nothing to start with, so you need to have a family who can support you financially etc.. There is a bit of a worry that in a few years time all of our artists/ journalists/actors etc.. will have been privately educated therefore maybe giving a biased point of view. Some of the older generation of working-actors have been speaking out against this (posh-bashing). I don’t know if you know Ray Winstone over there, but he is a very famous actor here. He is from a working-class background and usually plays cockney gangsters.
