About the Work

My father had a signature stamp with which he signed his official correspondence. The only things he signed by hand were his football pools and his tax returns. As a child, I was very impressed as I watched him work in his headmaster's study. He was also very keen on the correct name being used for things. So this work was a tribute to my father.
I decided to make a sculpture that was difficult to name in one word -- was it a box, a column, a bench or what? I ordered an 8' x 4' sheet of plywood, had it cut into four equal strips, which were joined along the edges, making it into a three-dimensional object. It was then sprayed white. I also ordered a signature stamp. A day was spending stamping my signature on the object. This I did myself.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
