 Narcissus Project

 
 
Commissioned by: Raqib Shaw
 
Location: London
 

Raqib Shaw is one of the UK’s leading artists and represented by The White Cube Gallery. The idea he had at the time was a version of Leda and the Swan but with his own take on it. I was given his drawings and sketches. I also visited him at his home and studio to discuss the piece and his work. I was shown many pieces of his work, I saw how he created his paintings and was impressed by the processes and people involved in creating just one of his paintings.

I made a number of small maquettes to begin with. We worked on many of Raqibs ideas and made changes to the maquettes until eventually producing the half life-sized finished bronze piece that would go on to make up half of the Narcissus project.
