I had no particular thing in mind when I made this composite. I was experimenting with layers, of which there are three in this image. It wasn’t until I had finished it that I looked at it and thought: ‘Richard!’
So, this image is dedicated to my friend, Richard Guest, with whom I collaborate on our joint blog: ‘Between Scarlett and Guest’.
I am indeed being influenced by his work. As well as anything else, I seem to have developed a liking for that muted orange colour that you can see here, which reminds me of Richard’s plastic bags. I find this an interesting phenomenon: this unconscious (until now) influence. And I’m happy for it. I hope Richard is too!
