Referring to the imagery of figures running on a vinyl record, depicted in the current lot, the artist comments, ‘The ability to keep the pace with the speed of the record can be regarded as staying afloat, for if you were to lose concentration you would fall. It is about understanding or knowing or mastering your craft, not only in art and music, but in other fields as well. Keeping the rhythm will motivate your pace, so you don’t fall. This body of work has been motivated by the need to stay on top with whatever I do.’1
