This exhibition of drawings featured the Japanese artist Takahiro Motegi's impressions of England and my impressions of Japan.
My practice is predominantly based in print and I produce woodcuts, linocuts and screen prints – or a combination of these media. I’m often inspired by films: for example the woodcut ‘Maggie and Tony’ depicts Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung in a scene from Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘In the mood for love’ and the screen print ‘Hero’ is an impression of Zhang Zuyi from Zhang Yimou’s ‘Hero’.
I love the barbaric nature of wood and lino cuts and I’m greatly influenced by the Expressionist woodcuts of Frans Masereel and Erich Heckel and the work of Neo-expressionist Georg Baselitz.
My prints interact with text too – in ‘Bronson on a Japanese ticket’ a sketch of the eponymous film star is drawn over Japanese lettering.
I also produce ink drawings, which often react to existing printed text (as in ‘John McEnroe’) or Sudoku grids that I have screen printed (for example: ‘Woman on train’). The expressive quality of my drawings counterbalance the bold graphics and flat colours of beermats too, in another series of interactions with existing printed matter.
