I identify deeply with the Spanish still life painters of the 17th and 18th centuries; especially their kitchen paintings. Their sense of vibrancy from simple objects, and the suggestion of mystery is something that I love bringing into the art of today. Taking these four simple elements, arranging them in a symmetrical way – but one which we’d never see in real life – gave me that sense of otherworldliness I was searching for.
