Sometimes I struggle over a work and it takes weeks to finish (The Woman in Gold). Sometimes work goes together like a dream – as in the just-completed The Great Wave, after Hokusai, based on a famous woodcut by the Japanese artist. The whalers in the boats have been replaced with little heads and some alien-like dolls in the foremost boat. At the heart of the wave is a 2-headed sea monster – great fun to make!
This piece and the Sunflowers from Amsterdam are now in the Red Propeller Gallery, Kingsbridge.
