Catalogue Note

“I’d already gone through the discipline of doing abstract work, because architecture is done abstractly. I’d done my exercises so I thought I’d go out into more, shall we say, organic work. It wasn’t meant to be figurative. It was more to do with the spirit of man and animal than with the actual physical being.”
