My drawing of Nin is made from beautiful rich red wool fabric cut from a military jacket.
Nin was once in the Queen’s guard. he was 73 when he died recently.
The background is made from studio rags
It is bizarre how when, cut into small pieces and knotted they start to take on the colours of bruises.
When complete the piece will have used between 27,000 and 30,000 bits of rag more than the days that made up Nin’s life
Like Days of my life, each element whether paper or cloth, unique in itself , yet seen from a glance they merge to tones and patterns of their own making.
