Working from memory, these pen drawings depict guys performing their everyday pastimes: a weekly manicure; pumping footballs; thumbs swiping left. Revisiting the biro doodles of his teens, Worsfold describes the rituals, obsessions and anxieties of his grown-ups. Started without a planned composition, limbs flower from objects et vice versa; diagrams of exchange between a body and accoutrements made to be touched, held, kicked, drank, ridden, tapped, squeezed and rubbed all over.
