"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"I was also looking at David Hockney’s paintings where he uses landscape and interior spaces and mapped them out in very rhythmic patterns. There was such a resonance there. I was also looking at the Sufi period of Persian painting and in that school of painting I was interested in the interior spaces versus the human body, how the animate and the inanimate exists."
