Regal Regis

Hand-stitched collage from discarded papers.

Cyrille Regis (Guardian 19.1.18. Photograph: Frank Baron) wearing what’s left of a Tower Of London advert (Time Out, 31 Jan – 6 Feb 2017. Photographer and boy uncredited) after I had cut out the crown for this.

Hand-stitched using my nana’s thread, to a page (WOLS Composition, 1950) from this.

15 x 21cms.

All of my work is numbered, this piece is 863.

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

Happy Cassidy

David Cassidy, who died on 12th April, 2017.

Made from a cutting from the Metro (23.11.17. Photograph: Getty Images) and a page from this book. The image is Reds And Yellows Of Harvest Time by Guiseppe Santomaso, 1957.

The crown came from an advert for the Tower Of London (scroll down to see), cut from Time Out London (31 Jan – 6 Feb, 2017). The photographer was uncredited. Royal Collections Trust.

The banana was cut from the Guardian (18.1.18). Photo: dutchscenery/ gettyimages/ istockphotoagency (take your pick!).

Hand-stitched using my nana’s thread.

15 x 21cms.

All of my work is numbered, this piece is 860.

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

Do not reproduce online without giving credit to the above sources. It’s just not right.

Biscuit Basket Basquiat

Jean Michel has been cut from a Barbican leaflet (Boom For Real, photograph by Edo Bertoglio), and hand-stitched to a page from this book, using my nana’s old silk thread.

The biscuit comes from a Co-op food advert, taken from Time Out London (March 22-28, 2016. No. 2372).

The Amazonian basket is used by women to carry bitter cassava, to make bread. Taken from Artefactos by Liliana Villegas and Benjamin Villegas. The photograph was taken by José Fernando Machado, Jorge Eduardo Arango, Diego Sampler or Diego Miguel Garcé. It is unclear which.
