"I’ve always worked from the figure and I’ve always been very aware of my own body.  As a child I had a lot of surgical procedures done on my legs. I spent a lot of time in the outpatient department of the hospital looking at other people that were very ill, much more ill than I was. Being aware of illness and problems with the body from a very early age has always stayed with me." -Justin Mortimer
