In my sculptures I seek to enter the consciousness of the viewer on a very deep level, to ask questions about who we are. These sculptures are very real, three-dimensional presences in London. But they also inhabit private worlds and appear again and again as figures in my paintings. To me they are mythological beings from my imaginative universe of Nerac. The ideas start small, as scribbles in a notebook, as tiny maquettes or as life size bronzes. Sometimes I decide to leave caution behind and work on a massive scale. But the ideas and forms are not enough, the surfaces are alive with my fingerprints and markings.
