Mostly Uninvited 677

Dr. Pozzi At Home by John Singer Sargent, 1881. The Armand Hammer Collection. Taken from a leaflet for ‘Sargent: Portraits Of Artists And Friends’, National Portrait Gallery, February-May 2015.

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.

      • I have seen some here, I can’t remember, I think Washington, DC. My memory of where is vague, but I clearly remember liking the insightful nature of the portraits, and the poses the people took. Always kind of languid, it seemed to me.

      • Most of what I had previously seen were reproductions, and the couple I saw in the flesh didn’t jump out at me. But this exhibition was really memorable.
