Paper. I don’t seem to be able to escape it. I make installations using newspapers and magazines, 100’s of tonnes of the stuff.

I’ve buried myself in huge collages of an epic Cecil B. De Mille scale over the last 30 plus years all made with paper, with hard copy images I’ve collected and filed over the same length of time now forming an image bank in my studio of 100’s of thousands of images...all paper. 

 I’m making mini epics now. 100’s of them, using comics. Commando books, Beano’s, Dandy’s , Hotspurs and Hornets, Beezers, Toppers, Buntys , Mandy’s too, all the comics I grew up with, finding them entertaining as a kid and still finding them relevant now. 

 Paper and collage of course go hand in hand but I’m often asked how I developed my computer skills in order to make these images. That’s funny. I have to confess I have almost no computer skills. I’m still cutting up images with scissors and scalpels and sticking them down with Pritt and still finding plenty of inspiration, still finding plenty of ideas, still finding plenty of imagery, issues and concerns for this 21st Century.”
