Tell us a little bit about how you’ve formed the images.
All the work is created using only graphite and pencil. Figuring out new ways to find the limits of such a simple medium is something from which I derive a lot of pleasure and in preparation for the show there was a great deal of experimentation. A lot of which has made it through in varying degrees into the final pieces. When the idea of doing a new show was confirmed, it was really important to me that that side of things had to develop, otherwise, what's the point?
You’ve worked with Hort, Non-Format, David Pearson and Darren Firth to create four posters for the exhibition…
When I had my first solo show in NY back in 2008, I collaborated with Non-Format to create a screen printed show poster, which, as well as selling out before the show opened, to this day is still one of my favourite folio pieces. So when this opportunity came along with KK Outlet I really wanted to do something similar but up the game. This led me to invite four of my favourite designers, not just one. The only stipulations were that certain basic information and the lead image needed to appear on the design, how and where was entirely up to them. They could crop the artwork, mess with it or totally leave it alone. Whatever suited them. I'm really pleased with the outcome, not to mention totally honoured to have people of that calibre involved.
