''The exhibition is called Horse Power because during World War One there was the change from using actual horses to aeroplanes and machinery.''
''I did a lot of research for this project,'' he explains. ''I get my ideas from books and archives. My source material is old photographs but I take and use them to do something else with it. I try to make it something more than just a copy of a photograph.''
''My first exhibition at St Martin's was called Remembrance in 2003/ 4. I exhibited paintings of poppy fields alongside poetry by World War One poets. I invited people to consider war and the loss of their loved ones.
''I want people to look at something, then question things. Paintings should offer, first, a sensation, so it draws you in; then if people want to unpick the context – why has he painted it?, why has he painted it at that time of day? - then they can do so.''
