"Self-Portrait in 2064" (2003)

"A few years ago somebody asked me, 'When did you go figurative?' There’s this sort of ridiculous idea, it’s a very silly idea left over from the twentieth century, that abstraction and figuration are legitimate poles. I’ve incorporated the two things from the very start and been fascinated by the idea that there is really no distinction. It’s just a question of scale."
