"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."
