'I made this work a long time ago, but it’s still very precious to me, and a print like this one hangs above the bed in my studio. I made the image very intuitively: the painted paper is cut and mounted in a way that covers up almost all of the underlying photo. Only a tiny little bit is peeping out underneath. Many years later, I realised that it looked like a heart.'
