It’s been a little more difficult to think of artists that I associate with my dad. My dad is a creative man; but what comes to mind when I think of him is the aroma of tomatoes cooking and Van Morrison songs.
My dad is a builder and loves architecture; both ancient and modern. I decided that the best way to reflect him therefore was though artists who work in 3D, with structure or sculpture.
As my dad is a Geordie, Anthony Gormely’s Angel of the North seemed as good a place as any to start. Good thing he likes it!
