 Inspiration came from Bernini’s work especially ‘Ecstasy of St Teresa’. His sculpture manages to create movement and emotion within solid marble. Egon Schiele’s beautiful yet awkward modern silhouettes, Inka Essenhigh’s super modern contortion or real fantastical reality, Cornelia Parker’s exploded objects, W. Eugene Smith’s ‘Okinawa 1943' image of searchlights in the night sky and the futurists and their attempts to capture movement within their work.
