"I started work on the mound idea and developed it into quite a number of variations. The painting 'Collapsed object 1' was the first in 1969 (the one that won the Georges Prize) except it was in the form of a pyramid. A mound is partly debris, partly natural phenomena and partly man-made – all three together. I was fascinated by it. Then it became a moundhouse with windows. Again it's to do with sculptural form – a pile of something – of coke or coal or it could be a pile of rubbish. I saw some photographs of Cappodochia in Turkey – those cave houses with windows in them. Things like that trigger other images for me. When making this print I also picked up some interesting things from photographs – like a photo of a section of crumpled rag which I made into a stencil. I used this same stencil over and over in different ways over a number of years."
