“I visited a retrospective exhibition of Picasso, at the Tate gallery, in the early 80s when I was at college, and many of my influences came from seeing that work. Especially a collection of small cardboard cut-out and folded, figurative sculptures. These simple two-dimensional pieces opened a world of possibilities on how I would approach my own work.”
