|Rachel Whiteread - Herringbone floor 2001|
In 2001 I went to the Rachel Whiteread exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery. Rachel Whiteread produced this as an edition for the gallery, I loved it so much at the time and eternally regret I didn't buy one then. It was only a few hundred pounds at the time and now it's approximately £2000!
Most importantly, it started me on the road to start cutting. In those early days I hadn't really seen any other paper cutters, but knew I wanted to make something like this.
It's always funny where inspiration comes from, it never appears when you go looking for it, but pops up when you least expect it.
I would love to hear what art works have inspired you.
