"It's summer here in London – our bodies may be in lockdown but our minds, our spirits and our imagination is certainly not. This is a new piece I am working on, it's a composition of three male figures.
The multiple figures are all about relationships.This sculpture here is about masculinity, talks about sticking together - as men, friends - but it has lots of other interpretations.
What do YOU think this relationship is?
That's the important bit - because sublimely it talks about relationships which are very personal interpretations from the viewer and I can see them in the sculpture when I make them and the viewer can see them because they are there in a totally transparent honest material; you can't hide anything with this, so everything is actually there!
It's what You see - it's a bit like these eye test drawings where you have coloured dots and if you're colour-blinded you can't see it but if you have normal vision you can see the picture. It sort of works on that level. On a sublimely level your read other relationships that can exist in the sculpture. "
