A Nice Head, the original work in this series, is a portrait of a neighbour of Adrian’s.  Using the neighbour’s

often surprisingly friendly greeting “alright dickhead!” and newspaper protocol, Adrian riffs upon the idea of

portraits as both portrayals of character ('dick' heads) and inanimate art objects ('nice' heads).
