David Bailey Takes The Biscuit

Hand-stitched collage, made from discarded papers and my nana’s thread.

12.5 x 20cms.

All of my work is numbered, this piece is 853.

It is a one-off. Never to be reproduced in print form. It goes against my grain. I do not add stuff to the world, but use what is already here.

Not to be reproduced online without giving credit to the people below.

David Bailey was cut from a photograph (Associated Newspapers/ Rex Features) entitled ‘Queen Elizabeth II meets David Bailey at the British Clothing Industry Reception At Buckingham Palace, 2010’. No doubt he is giving her some grief.

The picture was taken from a book (David Bailey Exposed, 2013) in the shop bin at work, I think it had been misprinted in some way.

The biscuit is a lip balm thingy. I cut it from ES Magazine (25.8.17). The photograph is by William Bunce.

I hand-stitched Bailey, and his biscuit, to this flimsy-as-hell paper.
