|Rima, Howard and Rex.|

Rima – Yes, it is like that, in a way, but the process isn’t so premeditated. When I work I am not a great sketcher. I discover in the process of the work. I may decide where a figure will go in the frame, but it is rather loose. I am interested in the spark which happens when the image suddenly comes together in front of you and starts to work. If that happens in the sketch, then that is a waste for me. It's almost as if, while I'm drawing the lines, what I'm about to draw next reveals itself to me. Maybe I will start to see a face in some loose lines...in the same way that you sometimes see a face or figure in the gnarled bark of a tree. I am not completely in control of the process...it's as though the characters in the image make themselves known to me. It sounds a bit flakey, but I don’t mean it like that.
