The Concept Of WonderWorlds
(Excerpt from "23 Art Retrospective" 2005 - Interview with SFX StarFields by Nicola Quinn)
SFX: I have always loved colours and lights.
Do you know these multi-packs of felt tip pens with all the different colours you can get?
Well, I always used to love those and just the actual colour, in and of itself, and when you put them together, when you are actually drawing something on a piece of paper, I find this as fascinating as watching a sunset.
It is just the actual existence and the movement of the colour and the light that I find completely fascinating, and I can do that autistically endlessly. It draws me into its own universe in a strange way.
One time I was on Bexhill beach, and I pointed out a tide pool and said, "Look, this is an entire valley, this is an entire land, where Tolkien's armies fought, and over there, there is a huge mountain they had to traverse!"
It's a tiny little rock pool but you just go into it, and this landscape expands around you, of possibilities and of potential, and there is always something that draws your attention.
NQ: So there is an element of fantasy and imagination about everything you see?
SFX: I don't think it is necessarily fantasy. It's there.
NQ: You said about the rock pool, and the Tolkien world.
SFX: That was an example of, look what is there!
You think it is just mud, and a bit of water and a couple of rocks, but it isn't.
It is so much more than that.
It is a world, with events, and an existence, and it is endlessly fascinating.
And EVERYTHING is like that.
Every leaf, every little bit of sand, everything is like that.
