"The drawings come before the sculpture. They always have. It’s not the other way around. All the imagery is there. In a funny way, drawing teaches me how to move my hands because the drawings are actually quite physical. They’re cut pieces of paper, or burnt pieces of paper, or stuff stuck on- collages. But they’re very important."
