1971 - 1979 'Index Cards' and various other mediums

A year or so after leaving art school and then having to leave my home in the forest I moved into a council estate in nearby Thetford.

As a young artist at the beginning of my career, and with the whole vast world to try to make sense of, I would collate drawings, photographs, drawings on photographs, texts, cuttings etc on A5 index cards. Whatever I was making, an element of it would have a life on an A5 card.

This was, of course, long before the digital revolution. Some work would grow beyond the confines of A5 and I also made individual A4 box files - all of which were, in themselves, 'the work'.
