My starting point is often the history of art. Like Alison Watt’s focus, not on the figure but the cloth draped on the body and what it tells us about absence, there is a vast field of reference to explore from the ‘damp’ Hellenistic, Nike of Samothrace, to the alienation of a ‘Wrapped Bottle’, by Christo. My drawings of fabric are simply about the, content free, abstract qualities of colour and form.
