“Two groups of drawings hang in the small space catty-corner to each other. Internally, the drawings develop a pure equality: Large groups of approximately identical portraits build into wonky tessellated pattern. The production of the drawings is equally democratic, rising just a half-step above the stick figure. It's something that'd be easily replicated without any artistic training. In fact, the artist dedicates the second page in his Shrigley-esque booklet, 'About Fifteen Hundred People, and About Four Hundred Rocks,' to that very idea. Here, Etchen includes five frames of step-by-step visual drawing instructions with the encouraging text ‘YOU CAN MAKE MY WORK.’” –Seth Orion Schwaiger
