Display caption

This series of screenprints is based
on pages from diaries the artist has
kept since 1965. They include photos, magazine cuttings and drawings as
well as writing.

 

Breakwell said his diaries record
'the side-events of daily life, by
turns mundane, curious, bleak,
erotic, tender, vicious, cunning, stupid, ambiguous, absurd, as observed by
a personal witness'.
