About the Work
“I used to keep a postcard of this photo on my fridge. Peter took a snapshot of me on his phone outside the McNamara Gallery years ago but I doubt he printed it! I just admire a simple photo of geometric shapes and I can taste the tarts looking at them. It has a busy rhythm like a textile design.”
- Nicky Bousfield, 'My Choice' January 2022
