This series of imaginary portraits, created over a year, endued out of a prolonged search. After labyrinthine experiments I had one of those Eureka moments as the conception and execution of what is now drawing no. 1 occurred simultaneously.

Primordial, tribal, futuristic, humanoid, the heads proceeded out of my unconscious, wearing their nervous systems on the outside. I had not seen their like before, but there was a whiff of recognition. They are ‘memories of the future’.
