Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Although this may seem like a seismic shift in focus, his [Richard Wotton's] interest in portraiture has been present since the late 1970s, and, if anything, this new body of work weaves together these two strands of his practice. They are portraits, certainly, but on the skin of each of the subjects is a visual architecture of the everyday: symbols, signs, images and lines that are drawn from a vocabulary as unique as it is universal. The subject matter of the tattoos is diverse and eclectic: a shark swimming from an armpit, a peacock in profile, cartoon cars, spider webs, tendrils and text. Today, tattooing is more popular than ever and it is now widely accepted across class, gender and cultural boundaries. The internet and social media have enabled even easier access to imagery and therefore made the creative direction of these pieces a more collaborative process between tattooist and tattooed."--Publisher description."Although this may seem like a seismic shift in focus, his [Richard Wotton's] interest in portraiture has been present since the late 1970s, and, if anything, this new body of work weaves together these two strands of his practice.
