"In this particular print I tried to use a figure, nobody in particular, just some head I picked up from some magazine, just a head from a crowd scene. But I soon dismissed that because it was too specific.
I only did it once. In the sixties screenprinting was really big
in London, with Hockney, Boshier, Hamilton and Paolozzi. They were Pop orientated, figurative and quite clear cut. I didn't want that. I was going in a different direction. I wanted ambiguity, to create my own kind of imagery, without the human form. I felt that if you put a human figure in, then straightaway you gave an indication of the scale around them. I didn't want that. I wanted to leave it ambiguous."
