"The 1980's animation The Mysterious Cities of Gold is my main creative influence. Developed over a long period of research, Aonocopia brings together sculptural prints made from printed oak veneered MDF, stained pine wood, acrylic and metal to create imagined icons, statues and objects. Box-framed three-dimensional metallic prints that are sliced, folded to form sharp minimal forms that hint at tribal masks".–Matthew-Robert Hughes
